With SCOM 2019 UR3 onwards, Ubuntu 20.04, Debian 10, and Oracle Linux 8 are also supported via the Universal Linux MPs! The latest support matrix can be seen HERE. This support is in response to requests for supporting the latest Linux Release on Uservoice.
Ubuntu, Debian, and Oracle Linux are highly popular Linux flavours with a vast and committed user-base, and supporting their latest needs is a priority for us and it is in line with our increased focus on making SCOM the tool-to-use for Linux Monitoring. Furthermore, this support comes in closely following the massive improvements of reliability in SCOM Linux Monitoring and the recent release of SCOM 2019 UR3.
No separate SCOM agent needs to be downloaded. The current UR3 agent can be used as is.
