BNA 12.1.x is not supported on the SuSE Linux Enterprise 64 bit version and that is why you do not see the SAN with SMI Agent +IP option when installing .

We are planning on adding this support to a future version of BNA .

Re: BNA 12.1.1 - Missing Option: SAN with SMI Agent + IP (default)

Thx for the answer. I should have taken a look at Page 1 , Table 4  of the Installation guide where SLES (64) is not listed. Could you tell me what the technical reason/problem is so SLES 64bit is not fully supported ?

BTW: I do not mind to be a beta tester for a SLES 64bit BNA Version :-) SLES is our main Linux env.

Thx and have a nice weekend.

Hajo ,

I can't really comment on the technical reason behind the support for the 64 bit version but what i can tell you is that we are tracking this for a Feb 2014 release of BNA .

And if you are interested in beta testing please get in touch with your local SE and they can assist you with this request .

Thanks and you have a great weekend too !
