> Rebase Dev Environment on Latest CentOS 6

>                 Key: METRON-1452
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/METRON-1452
>             Project: Metron
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Nick Allen
>            Assignee: Nick Allen
>            Priority: Major
> Currently the CentOS development environment 
> (`metron-deployment/development/centos6`) is based on an image 
> [metron/centos_base|https://app.vagrantup.com/metron/boxes/centos_base] that 
> has not been updated in 11 months.  This image is really just a snapshot of 
> [bento/centos6.7|https://app.vagrantup.com/bento/boxes/centos-6.7] from 11 
> months ago. The bento/centos6.7 image has not been updated in quite some time 
> also.
> On the other hand, the [centos/6|https://app.vagrantup.com/centos/boxes/6] 
> image was updated 23 days ago. Presumably these images are receiving critical 
> patches for long term support.
> We should base the CentOS development environment 
> `metron-deployment/development/centos6` on the 
> [centos/6|https://app.vagrantup.com/centos/boxes/6] image so that we can be 
> confident that Metron continues to work on the latest patches for the CentOS 
> 6 series.
> This would match what we do for the Ubuntu development environment which is 
> based on  [ubuntu/trusty64|https://app.vagrantup.com/ubuntu/boxes/trusty64].  
> This image continues to receive updates regularly despite the age of the 
> Ubuntu 14 release.  It was updated just 3 days ago.
