Post by rahul.shinde » 2018/12/06 10:59:43

Hello Team,

I would like to know whether Centos Release 6.4(Final) and above version can support below hardware configuration ?

Lenovo RS 160 1 U Rack server : Intel Xeon E3 1225 V5 @ 3.3 Ghz, 8 GB DDR4 RAM, RAID 0/1 builtin ,1 TB Enterprise SATA hardisk, Addon 8 GB DDR4 ECC Reg RAM

Thanks and Regards

No-one should use 6.4. It came out in early 2013 and went EOL when 6.5 was released in December that year. That makes it nearly 6 years old and it has 6 years worth of security bugs in it, some of them very serious. Only the current version, 6.10 should be used.

And, yes, 6.10 should have support for that hardware though its "RAID" is most likely FakeRAID and you should probably avoid using that and set the controller to AHCI mode and use linux software RAID instead.
