Re: [Condor-users] Running Condor 7.2.0 on CentOS 5

Generally when Condor says that a condor version will
run on a particular version.update of Red Hat Linux, then it will
run on that same version/update of Centos or of Scientific Linux,
which both try very hard to maintain binary compatibility
with Red Hat.  However, Condor is very careful not to make
statements that they actually support a platform unless they
actually have that platform in house and are doing nightly builds
and tests on it.

Fermilab is running condor 7.2.0 on one of our big Scientific Linux
clusters right now.  The collectors and schedd's are at 5.2,
the startd's are at various update levels of 4.x.  There have
been no significant problems.

Does anyone have any experience with running Condor 7.2.0 on
CentOS 5?  I have been running Condor (6.8 and 7.2) on RHEL
(4.6 and 5.1) for 18 months with almost no problems.  I am
making a large hardware purchase and I don't want to spend
tons of money on the OS.  The vendor has offered to pre-load
CentOS.  I have read the Ports page and table on the Condor
website and it mentions nothing about CentOS.  Please let me
know your experiences.

The LIGO groups at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and
Syracuse University are running Condor 7.2.0 on CentOS 5.2
in production. We have in total about 2000 slots on CentOS 5.

We are pleased with the combination.
