That's true, I had forgotten you could do that. At any rate, I'd rather run a "supported" version if it makes my life easier.
I really like the appliance version, it's very straightforward and doesn't require messing around with administering yet another server.
Of course your mileage may vary depending on preferences.
By the way if you're feeling a bit brave, check out the release candidate for version 6.3 of OCUM, there's some pretty slick feature enhancements: http://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/software/oncommand_cdot/6.3RC1/
* Data ONTAP monitoring enhancements: verifying and monitoring the activities of SSDs and All Flash
* FAS (AFF) platforms, displaying export policies applied to qtrees, and reporting caching policies of a volume
* Two-node MetroClusterâ„¢ configuration: tracking two-node configuration for link down issues using Node-Bridge, Inter Node, Node Stack, and Automatic Unplanned Switchover events
* Configuring and installing Unified Manager for high availability in a Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux system and MicrosoftÂ® Cluster Server on a WindowsÂ® system to provide failover
* Providing authentication over a secure connection
* Customizing alert scripts and associating the scripts to alerts, and monitoring events using alerts
* Performing scheduled backups of Unified Manager, and restoring the backup to a local system or a remote system
* Groups: creating groups to manage storage objects and configuring volume thresholds as required for members of the group
* You can create, edit, or delete groups, group actions, and group rules
* Enhancement to annotations
* Support for using CLI commands in Unified Manager
* Fast notifications for MetroCluster configurations

Subject: Re: Anyone able to install OnCommand Performance Manager on CentOS 6 machine?
I can't remember if it was this or OCUM 6.x, but I just changed the /etc/redhat-release file to match what a rhel system would have and the install worked.
I was running CentOS 6.7.
I only went to the VMware appliance for performance manager because I knew NetApp wouldn't give me any support if I needed it once they found out it was CentOS.
Ended up putting OCUM Windows (instead of VMware appliance, or CentOS for above reason) so I could get at the cli for it.
Turns out it wasn't worth it.
