Domino 10 Platform Requirement based on build plattform

Just learned that the new Linux build platform and version for Domino 10 means that the only supported platforms will be SLES 12, RHEL 7.4 and CentOS 7.4.

The main reason for not supporting RHEL 6.x is the older libs that come with RHEL 6.x including RHEL 6.10 (just checked).
RHEL 6.10 still comes with GLIBC 2.12 and RHEL 7.4 comes with GLIBC 2.14. There is no easy way to upgrade the GLIBC version!

So you have to keep that in mind and should already have a look into RHEL 7.4 / CentOS 7.4.
7.4 is stable and not much more complicated beside one major change.
Instead of init.d SLES 12 (which already around for a longer time) and RHEL 7 leverage systemd which is quite a change!
But the good news is that my start script already supports it for quite a while and many customers are happy with their RHEL 7.x environments.

I am posting that as a heads up to be prepared. That also means that I have to upgrade my production machines to a new version once Domino 10 is available..
