So, can I monitor RedHat 6 with SCOM 2019 UR1’s Universal UNIX/Linux management pack?

Hello fellow SCOM admins,
Some time ago I have blogged about monitoring an older version of RedHat 6 with SCOM 2019. Using an older management pack that usually comes with SCOM 2016, we were able to discover RedHat 6 and monitor it properly.
However, with the release of SCOM 2019 UR1 there were some changes. The availability of the Universal UNIX/Linux management pack would make UNIX/Linux a lot easier, as less management packs are required for monitoring multiple versions of UNIX/Linux. That leaves us with the following question; would that imply the Universal UNIX/Linux management pack, is universal enough to support RedHat 6?
Time to find out! For the sake of this example, let’s have a look how this would go in a semi-fresh installation of SCOM 2019, without UR1, and what management packs are there to support RedHat 6.
