Hi Team,  

   We have new versions of Windows servers (2008, 2012) and would like to install the latest  (like version 7.0) or close to the latest versions of cisco wireless control systems on them.  We also run RHEL 6+.  The product wouldn't install and with google I  kept ending up with this link   -->
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/wireless/wireless-control-system/product_data_sheet0900aecd802570d0.html that shows that only windows 2003 is supported.

Unless I am missing something, we are a bit unimpressed that Cisco will not release WCS software running on the newer server OS versions.

 Has anyone had any luck with installations of WCS on new Windows and Linux server OSes?

thanks and regards,

Cisco WCS stopped being WCS after v7.0.240.0 and became NCS, which is now Cisco Prime Infrastructure.  It runs as an appliance or as a VM in ESXi.  You can obtain a migration license from Cisco to get Prime Infrastructure but as I say, you'll need to buy an appliance for it or install the OVA on an ESXi box.
