Subject RE: CentOS7 Packages
Date Mon, 12 Feb 2018 14:41:23 GMT
We've updated the 'recommended' versions, the quick start guide will take a little time to
do, as we'd need to verify all of the steps.  The last thing that I'd want to do in the guide
is give incorrect information, which might lead first-timers to thinking that CloudStack didn't
work.


Kind regards,

Paul Angus

Hi Paul,

There are actually multiple occurrences. Two of which I can think right now:

Minimum System Requirements in "Installation overview": http://docs.cloudstack.apache.org/projects/cloudstack-installation/en/4.11/overview/index.html

"Operating system: Preferred: CentOS/RHEL 6.3+ or Ubuntu 14.04(.2)"

Now that I think about it, one could also read this as minimum requirements (such as the page
title reads) and not as recommendation... so scratch that ( To make that clearer, I'd suggest
to rewrite this section "CentOS/RHEL 6.3+, CentOS/RHEL 7.x+ or Ubuntu 14.04(.2) or higher",
where the "x" needs to be filled if a specific 7.x minor release is required. 

The quick installation guide ( http://docs.cloudstack.apache.org/projects/cloudstack-installation/en/4.11/qig.html
) does refer to CentOS 6 in general and uses CentOS 6, which one may read as recommendation.
However I guess one could just replace CentOS 6 with CentOS 7 following the same guide and
there should be no problem.

After reviewing the 4.11 documentation, I found that most pages indeed recommend CentOS 7.
Just read the two I described above before and came to hasty conclusions. Sorry for that.

Regards
Daniel

    Hi, 
    
    I'd like to add a question here - in the 4.11 documentation, CentOS 6 is still the recommended
release - CentOS 6 is quite old now and CentOS7 out for a while. Is there a specific reason
why we stick to the CentOS 6 recommendation?
    
    Regards
    Daniel
