In our company we're using both the official RHGS and CentOS versions on (official) RHEL8 and 9 systems and both work great. The way we install anything is via ansible playbooks/roles and for glusterfs we do the same. Not just creating the cluster and volumes, also some other stuff like extending volumes, enabling snapshots etc.
Modified our regular ansible-role slightly to work with CentOS8/Rocky8 (or any other) and published this on [ https://github.com/royen99/ansible-role-glusterfs | https://github.com/royen99/ansible-role-glusterfs ] . To use it with actual RHEL system it needs the codeready-builder repo instead of the PowerTools repo. Hope it can be of use to anyone.

Where are there official Red Hat Gluster 10 RPMs for RHEL? There's no such thing. Let's not confuse the upstream Gluster project and Red Hat product - RHGS (Red Hat Gluster Storage), which has a different version and lifecycle than the project. Red Hat does not build upstream project official RPMs for RHEL. That being said, I'm somewhat surprised the CentOS RPMs don't work on RHEL - is that indeed the case? Y.

Sorry if that was not clear. I am interested in trying the latest, community versions of Samba-416 and Gluster-10 on RHEL. That was why I was asking the question. Sure, I can absolutely use the Red Hat Gluster Storage software from the official repos, but I am interested in playing with the latest and greatest community bits... but on RHEL. I *can* use CentOS, but I prefer to use genuine RHEL. I was wondering if there was a "right" way of doing so. I am playing with the CentOS Gluster-10 and Samba-416 repos just to learn. It looks like they work just fine once I enabled EPEL and those CentOS repos. I was more checking to see if there were any problems just enabling the CentOS Storage SIG repos on RHEL. So far, it does not appear that there are problems. So far, it seems to be working. Thanks for all the responses. I appreciate them.
