Because of the high license fees my company tries to get away from RedHat, but the HCL applications unfortunately still require it. HCL Connections, including all components, seems to work fine on CentOS. But it is not supported.
There are just minor defferences between RHEL and CentOS that shouldn't lead to issues for the product. Component Pack is already supported on CentOS.
So please, add support for CentOS, and ensure that it is fully supported for Connections v7.
