[Lustre-discuss] 1.8.x server for el6

I am wondering about the release matrix for Lustre vs. RHEL/CentOS.

Lustre		lustre.org	whamcloud
Release		------------	------------
		el5	el6	el5	el6
1.8.7 client	yes	no	yes	yes
1.8.7 server	yes	no	yes	no

2.0		(discontinued)	    n/a

2.1   client	     n/a	yes	yes
2.1   server	     n/a	yes	yes


It appears that the current recommended production release is Lustre-1.8, and, since there is no server for el6 I take that as a strong hint to stick to el5.

Is there some more information public? I was planning to upgrade a cluster to el6. Ideally, I'd like to have servers and user nodes all on the same major OS release. However, stability will trump that.

Best, Michael
