RE: [Linux-cluster] GFS on Redhat Enterprise 3 ES



A linux distribution like RHEL3 comes with updates for security
fixes over time that you have to apply unless you want to be vulnerable
to then well-published threats. That's the nature of the game. So while
the customer can ask you not to apply your own patches at the very least
they have to accept RHEL3u6 rather than the originally released RHEL3.

Once you are there, if you then can then just load modules rather than
patching 
the kernel specifically for GFS, then you are good to go.

Hi,
unfortunately is a contractual constraint, we are forced by our
costumers to use the "original" kernel.
