It is a requirement to run the certification test suite on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 installation where the only 3rd party non Red Hat software present is that of the software vendor's product under test and any dependencies of the software vendor's product. For this reason it is highly recommended that a new installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 is made available for software certification testing as to avoid false failures and complexity in analyzing certification results.
