Workspace ONE UEM is compatible with all distributions of Linux running on x86_64, ARM5 or ARM7 architectures, although not all features might be available on every distribution. Make sure that your system meets these additional Workspace ONE UEM version and network requirements before you deploy your Linux devices.

Linux Device Requirements

You can enroll devices running any distribution of Linux running on x86_64, ARM5 or ARM7 architectures into Workspace ONE UEM.

  • Installers are created for specific distributions and architectures. Ensure you are using the correct installer for your use case.

  • The device must be running System D or System V in order for Hub to run as a system service.

  • The Puppet agent (open source) is required for configurations using Workspace ONE profiles. If running a Debian-based (deb) or Red Hat-based (rpm) system, this will be installed automatically with Hub. For other systems, or when using the tarball method of installation, it must be installed manually prior to WS1 enrollment. See installation section for more information.

Workspace ONE UEM Requirements

Currently this feature is in **Limited Availabilty** and might not be available in your environment, nor is it currently available for on-premise installations of WS1 UEM. New UEM infrastructure called Control Plane (also required for Freestyle Orchestrator) must be enabled in your environment so that Workspace ONE UEM can support managing Linux devices. Currently this is available in Shared Saas UAT environments CN135, CN137 and CN138 and we will be rolling it out to Dedicated and Shared Saas environments following Control Plane and UEM v2109 being deployed.

  • You must deploy the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Linux v21.10 or newer. Previous versions including v21.01 and v1 of the Intelligent Hub for Linux do not support the features described in this guide.

  • Workspace ONE UEM v2109 or newer with Control Plane implemented are both required to be able to use Linux Management.

Before attempting to enroll a Linux device, please check whether or not Linux management is enabled in your WS1 UEM environment. The easiest way to validate this is to create a new profile and check if Linux is an available option.

Do this by navigating to Resources > Profiles & Baselines> Profiles> Add> Add Profile.

If you see Linux as an option, similar to the following, you have been enabled and can enroll a Linux device. If not, enrolling a Linux device will not work in your environment. Please see the following KB article to read more about when environments are scheduled to be upgraded.
