CentOS

Anyone use this? DO you like it? I don't. It kinda reminds me of the
Cubs. They have the pieces but when it matters they fail.

Re: CentOS

I thought it was an okay OS, but I prefer another.

Then you don't like RHEL, either?

Really? Compared to what? SLES makes it look poor.

I have 2 CentOS servers. They have been in place 6 and 1 month respectively.
I've already encountered proportionally higher number of issues with them
than the OpenSuSE boxes they replaced. Believe my, it's not my preference,
but a vendor I was using dropped support for OpenSuSE and I had to make a
move. It was the closes thing to SuSE I could find...and it's really not
even close.

If your going to use CentOS the first thing I would run after you get it
going is 'yum remove NetworkManager' it'll save you a headache or two.

No server should ever use NetworkManager.

It's been working great for me for the last 3-4 years or so. We have
quite a bit of it at work, and are bringing more up frequently, latest
for a clustered FTP site. It's probably third in deployment numbers
there, following RHEL and Solaris.

In other words:

"NetworkManager attempts to keep an active network connection available
at all times. It is intended only for the desktop use-case, and is not
intended for usage on servers. The point of NetworkManager is to make
networking configuration and setup as painless and automatic as
possible. If using DHCP, NetworkManager is _intended_ to replace
default routes, obtain IP addresses from a DHCP server, and change
nameservers whenever it sees fit."
