Juniper will be updating the version of JAVA used in NSM to JAVA 7.
JAVA 7 is not compatible with RedHat 4 and must have RedHat 5.5 or greater.
Juniper has tested JAVA 7 with RedHat 5.7 and this will be the official minimum OS.

NSM is only compatible with 32 bit Linux. Please keep this in mind when upgrading the OS.
