Proliant BL20P G4 Server - RHEL 6 Support

Hi,

 

I am using HP Proliant BL20P G4 Server & i installed RHEL 6 . As per HP Hardware support matrix  RHEL 6 won't support BL20P G4 server, Only support RHEL 5 & below.

 

My Query is, What would be the Risk factor if i am using RHEL6 on this hardware .

 

We are using Lotus application on this server & its running full availability, Last 15 days we are monitoring this server , we won't face any such issues.

 

Thanks in Advance,

Usually, drivers are not available for unsupported versions. This may lead to situations where the hardware would function sub-optimally.

It is not an HP supproted configuration. That being said, Since it appars to be working OK, this one may fall under the "Unsupported, known to work" catagory

 

 

 

 

Supported, known to work                        -> warm fuzzies all around
Supported, not known to not work        -> an HPite may be in trouble
Supported, known to not work                -> an HPite is in trouble
Unsupported, known to work                   -> lucky today, unlucky tomorrow?
Unsupported, not known to not work   -> there but for the grace of Turing
Unsupported, known to not work           -> no, it was not deliberate ;-)
