We are currently having a lot of clients in several UNIX legacy servers (Solaris 8, HPUX 11.11, RHEL 5) that are client to a fileserver server (RHEL 5.11 version VM 8.4)
We are thinking on upgrading the FileServer Linux to RHEL 7 but we won't be able to upgrade the client servers to higher versions of their current OS
Is this feasible? Could we install VM 8.4 fileserver in RHEL 7? If that is not possible, could we mantain legacy clients in VM 8.4 although we upgrade Fileserver to latest 8.6?
