Hi, My experience with IPA over the last year is, I wouldn't use this in a production environment without full vendor support.
So I have to say RHEL6.4 64bit, yes it will cost but frankly its minor compared to lost downtime and credibility. regards Steven Jones Technical Specialist - Linux RHCE Victoria University, Wellington, NZ 0064 4 463 6272 ________________________________ From: freeipa-users-boun...@redhat.com [freeipa-users-boun...@redhat.com] on behalf of Peter Brown [rendhal...@gmail.com] Sent: Monday, 21 January 2013 4:11 p.m. To: Brian Topping Cc: freeipa-users Subject: Re: [Freeipa-users] Best OS to use with FreeIPA?

I think I am going to bite the bullet and put F18 into production. One of the elements that made that easier was recognizing that RHEL 7 was going to be based on Fedora of some sort, and a stripped-down Fedora with SELinux will be plenty secure while I wait for that convergence. It seems that Fedora 18 will be the template for RedHat 7 so it's almost like getting it early. Cheers!
