Dell and CentOS 4.8

Postby torintino2 » 2011/07/22 16:24:57

I want to install CentOS 4.8 on the following Dell Servers:
R310, R410, R415, R510, R610 and R710

I found on the page of "Operating System Support Matrix for Dell PowerEdge Systems" [http://advisors.dell.com/advisorweb/iDriveMatrixView.aspx]
that they all do support "RED HAT ENTERPRISE LINUX 4" Update 8 x86 & Update 8 x86_64

So do they also support CentOS 4.8?

Thank you

Well, one might have to tell them one is using RHEL4 for support but CentOS should be compatible with the hardware. ;-)

torintino2 - are you aware that CentOS-4 reaches end of life Feb 29, 2012 and may thus not be a good choice for new deployments?
