Subject Re: Support of RHEL version
Date Thu, 24 Jan 2013 17:40:35 GMT
Hi,

Moving the post to cdh-user@cloudera.org 
(https://groups.google.com/a/cloudera.org/forum/?fromgroups=#!forum/cdh-user)
as it is CDH4 you specifically are asking about. BCC'd user@hadoop
lists, lets carry forward the discussion on the CDH lists. My response
below.

RHEL 5.x and 6.x wil be supported. Means, RHEL 6.3 too.

Cheers,
 Alex

 Cloudera website talks about supporting RHEL 6.1 version with challenges/issues with the
newer version. It also though provides a workaround for it. Wanted to hear from the community
on the supported versions of RedHat Linux and any guidance on which version to choose?

poorly with Hadoop workloads. This can cause a serious performance regression compared to
other operating system versions on the same hardware.
