Lustre 2.8 client will work fine with Lustre server 2.5.x.  You will not be 
able to use some of the new features in 2.8 without a 2.8 server, of course.

Subject: [lustre-discuss] will lustre client 2.8 work with lustre server 2.5.4x

Dear list,

will lustre client 2.8 work with a lustre server 2.5.4x ?

I am planning two lustre server setups, one with a definite version 2.5.4x and
the other with 2.8.x.

If I install lustre client 2.8 on the cluster nodes will they be able to
communicate effectively with the cluster server 2.5.4x ?

Best wishes,
