    Hi All,

    I have 2 servers running Red Hat Enterprise 3.0 (both with WHM/cPanel of course). They are both setup as nameservers (ns1 and ns2 respectively). I'm looking at replacing ns1 with a larger/faster server. Here is my question...should I upgrade to Red Hat 4.0? How will RH 4.0 interact with my other RH 3 server? Should I just upgrade both of them at the same time?

    Thanks a million for any comments.

    Go on, have a guess
    Running RHEv4 is probably a better idea than staying on RHEv3 if you're moving to a new server as it uses the 2.6 kernel. I don't believe RedHat recommend upgrading the OS from v3 to v4, though, and you should really start with a clean OS installation if you decide to go that route with the non-upgraded server. Bear in mind that support for RHEv3 from RedHat will be around for a few more years to come.

    There are no interactivity issues at all between servers running v3 and v4 of RHE.

    Thanks Chirpy. That is exactly what I was hoping to hear. I'll make the move to RHEv4 on the new server.
