QoreStor Current Version - Interoperability Guide

Verify connectivity

The usage of the QoreStor repository requires stable TCP/IP connectivity between the backup application server and the QoreStor repository server.

NOTE: The QoreStor repository and backup application server need to be on the same local network.

Supported installation platforms

QoreStor is supported on the following platforms:

Table 7: Operating systems supported for installation
Operating System Bit level
CentOS1 Linux 7.3 - 7.9, 8.32 64-bit

Oracle3 Linux 7.3 - 7.9, 8.32 64-bit

NOTE: CentOS, RHEL, or Oracle Linux1 version 8.3 is recommended for fresh installations unless VTL is required. If support for VTL is required, CentOS, RHEL, or Oracle Linux1 version 8.2 is recommended.

NOTE: Only CentOS, RHEL, or Oracle Linux1 versions using the following kernels are supported:

  • Linux version 7.x
    • 3.10.0-514
