I am planning to install ZCM with all the accompanying products, i.e. Endpoint security, Patch Management, Asset Management, ZFD, etc onto a single high end server.

What I am trying to determine is the appropriate Operating System to use and the sub components (e.g. Edirectory) that require to be installed.

I am leaning towards SLES but I am unsure whether the choice will affect the operation of other products, e.g. Asset Management.

The install documentation that I have downloaded so far treats each products deployment in isolation.

I would appreciate it if someone could advice me on the right operating system and sub components to host all the products of ZCM.

Appreciate it.
