When I tried to stand up lustre 2.5.3 on CentOS 6.5 systems I was unable to get it to work with the Mellanox OFED packages I'd downloaded.  Since I wanted to use the lustre rpms without recompiling them I pulled the Mellanox packages and installed the OFED stack from CentOS (which, I believe, comes down from Red Hat).
