    Default Release 7.2 - RHEL5_64 being deprecated ?

    In the release notes for 7.2 RHEL 5 is now showing as being deprecated after 7.2

    Is this true or an error ?

    Red Hat has committed support for RHEL 5 through 2017

    As it's in the bug report I guess it's true.

    Yeah I saw it there too...was really hoping I wouldn't. Would have expected support for 5.x to stick around a lot longer.

    We weren't talking about ZCS 5.x but RHEL 5.x.

    With great sorrow, yup. Guess we'll be moving to RHEL 6 sooner then we had planned.

    This seems crazy that they would deprecate the industry's most widely used platform so early. It will cause a lot of grief.

    ...seems odd, but who knows when 8 will be released and what specific frameworks it will need.

    Default Some updates from Product Management

    Hi Folks,

    Painful, I know. There are some really good improvements in RHEL6 (tickless timer, dynamic hugepages) That improve performance and scaling of Zimbra when compared to RHEL5. Great work by RedHat IMO, including these capabilities in their Linux distro!

    When Zimbra 8 ships (this year) we'll be supporting 3 major versions of Zimbra at the same time. This creates a huge support and testing matrix for us with all the distros and versions within these distros that we were supporting. To help us slim this down to put more emphasis on quality/stability, not to mention Zimbra just runs better on RHEL6, we made the decision to reduce the number of versions across the distros we are supporting in Zimbra 8.

    I hope this helps at least explain what we're doing.

    Thanks!
