Was those built under redhat 7.3 or any other?
Yes, 7.3 it is. I have no boxes running anything newer. It looks like we
will be switching to Red Hat ES pretty soon for the database box which
would mean that I can't use the XFS filesystem anymore since it is not
covered by the support contract.
Some other boxes for which I do not care about the support anyways will
keep using XFS. That means I'll probably would need to make some sort of
installer for Red Hat ES with XFS support in order to install or upgrade.
The biggest problem with ES is the use of the "ancient" 2.4.9 kernel with
more patches then you can shake a stick at.
It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
