Distribution Support

Cobbler currently supports importing a wide array of distributions from many vendors. However, since Cobbler has a history rooted in Red Hat based distributions, support for them is definitely the strongest. For others, the level of support varies from very good to requiring a lot of manual steps to get things working smoothly.

Here is the full list of supported distributions.

Key:

  • Fully supported
  • Some support, not 100%
  • Not supported, or significant manual action required
