    Thank you for your patience as we worked on this enhancement request. I'm pleased to say that the current maintenance for Connect:Direct for UNIX v6.2 does support SLES 15 SP2. Please visit Fix Central to pull down and apply the latest maintenance to run on that OS.

    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders

    Thank you very much for opening this enhancement request with us. I have reviewed it thoroughly with my team and we believe it is both technically possible and would provide value to the broader C:D user base. We will accept this request as an uncommitted candidate and will look to add it to the roadmap moving forward. Thank you very much for using the enhancement request tool and if you uncover other ideas that we should consider please do let us know.

    Thanks,
