Any distribution that offers a server installation will be ok to use. I would, personally, recommend Debian 7 (Wheezy) but you could use Centos or Scientific if you want to use Red Hat compatible distributions.

why not just run a normal update and upgrade it to the CURRENT RHEL 6.5
or do a dist upgrade
Code:
su -
yum --releasever=6.5 upgrade
or
replace it with CentOS 6.5

If this is your problem, it is odd that you haven't tried to cure it. You have, in a previous thread, asked about RH 5.3 and some kind of HP machine, but that isn't the problem described above. And saying that you are seeking a replacement for RHEL 6.0 seems to imply that you want to get something that works like RHEL 6.0 did, as that once worked, and that doesn't make much sense, either, because RHEL 6.0 is now 'creating problem' while installing (you do know that is an almost useless description of the problem, for fault finding, don't you?).

Or, maybe, the 'works like RHEL 6.0' thing is a red herring, in which case you need to come up with a better description of the requirements.

And, why 6.0? Is there something that you have to run that insists on that version (quite unlikely)?

While you could run Centos, it seems likely that you need all of the support help that you can get, and, as you do not seem to have a problem with paid-for applications, you should pay for the support because it seems that you will need it. The alternative, learning to describe the faults succinctly and accurately so that you can make efficient use of free support is probably a bit far off for you, at the moment, at least.

If you have a problem with RHEL, call them: that's what you paid for. You didn't pay? You're using a demo version you downloaded, or some-one gave you? Well, there's your problem.

Oracle is a good choice. At one time they even offered a pre-made linux with database in it. Not sure I'd test the latest 7 yet for production.


Suse and OpenSuse are great products also. You can build one at www.susestudio.com and add in packages.


As above any linux really should be OK, Gentoo or other could be set up for best speed if you really know what you are doing.
