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.

Seconding Michael's comment. A big part of Red Hat's value add is to fix bugs and deal with security issues. A lot of good work has gone into the updates for RHEL 3 since it's inception in Oct '03. We've pushed out 6 updates and number 7 is in the oven (beta.)

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

Thanks Rob,
but I can't upgrade or patch the kernel, do you think there is another solution? Maybe with GFS 5.2.1, but I can't find the sources
or the rpms.
What's your constraint for you can't upgrade/patch the kernel?
If you don't have an access to Red Hat Network, just grab the SRPMS & build it.

Maybe this will help you,
