Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 802533
Which non Red Hat OS'es will we support gluster client on?

Description of problem:
In SFDC 00607550, customer ESRI has several "client" AMI's mounting Gluster that are running SuSE. Which operating systems/distros will we support running clients on? In their case, they can either take the risk that an RPM install on SuSE will work (they have not seen issues so far using Gluster 3.2.3 and 3.2.2 clients), or else compile from source. In either case, for this or other distributions, what are the criteria under which we would support clients? Will we mandate that if clients experience an issue that they must be tested on a supported Red Hat OS / Gluster version?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This question is raised for the legacy Gluster AMI but the scope extends to physical servers as well. We should also define if there would be any difference in supportability for instances running in AWS versus physical.
This question should be addressed by multiple teams here IMO.
we will have only RPM packages to start 3.3.0 release, built on RHEL and Fedora. Anyone using other flavours can use NFS to mount the volume.
Case by case we can start providing packages for other flavours.
Moving this bug out of my name, as its a policy decision. (rather should we consider this type of questions as a bug ? what should be resolution for these after answering?)
For the near term, the gluster install on the client side will be supported for RHEL customers. Non-RHEL customers can use NFS or CIFS which we will test in the standard way to make sure we pass the interop tests.
Although closed as not a bug, moving this to component: unclassified as we are removing component: porting. Before that can happen, there can be no bugs logged against the component.
