A New SUSE SAP Business One installer image is ready


Following our motto „We adapt you succeed“ together with our IHV‘s and SAP we have refreshed the installer image for SAP Business One.

First of all many thanks to all IHV‘s which have validated the new installer image. They went the extra mile with us and make this happen. I‘d like to say thank you again for the great cooperation between all parties during this validation period. The new SUSE SAP Business One installer image was validated by FUJITSU, Nutanix, Supermicro, Dell and Lenovo for their respective Hardware.

What’s new?

  • SAP Business One 10 requires and supports SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15

  • Base operating system including all patches until the October 2020 is “SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2

  • SUSE SAP Installation Wizard (partitioning and installation of SAP HANA and SAP Business One)

  • System optimization for SAP HANA® and SAP Business One® in place (sapconf 5) https://documentation.suse.com/sles-sap/15-SP2/single-html/SLES-SAP-guide/#sec-sapconf-5

  • tailored for bare metal deployments only (FUJITSU, Nutanix, Supermicro, Dell, Lenovo)
  • The pre-installed OS image requires a normal SUSE subscription for SLES and is a service from SUSE for the Business One partners without additional costs

    Thanks Bernard. I have recently built a system with the image and when using expert partitioner I get a warning ” The system might not be able to boot : Missing device for /boot/efi with size equal or bigger than 256MiB and filesystem vfat”

    This is all setup by default on the image. I was just using expert partitioner to setup a backup volume.

    Does this mean there is an issue with the image ?
