ArcGIS Server 10.2 on CentOS 6

Hi everybody,

For economic reasons, we would like to install arcgis server 10.2 on CentOS 6 on our integration and pre-production platforms.
However, we will install arcgis server on the RHEL 6 production to meet the recommendations of ESRI.
Do you think this is possible?
If so, ESRI centos6 bear it?

ArcGIS for Server 10.2 is only supported on RedHat and Suse Linux:

You can install ArcGIS Server (10.1, at least) on CentOS 6 and it will run just fine. Whether you want this for pre-production is another story though since ideally pre-production and production environments should be identical. But since the purpose of CentOS is to be a near-identical replica of Redhat anyway, maybe that's good enough.

Edit: whoops, just realized the original post is a year old

You can install it, but it might not work.  I had a customer who had wanted CentOS 6, but had to switch over to RHEL 6 when a security patch released just about one year ago caused ArcGIS Server 10.1sp1 to suddenly stop working.  Upgrading to 10.2/10.2.2 didn't help.  Replacing the OSes set the project back a week. Far better to use a supported OS than work without a net.

CentOS 5.11 continues to work for me, but I wouldn't recommend it for integration, testing, or production.
