Downloading the Community Edition Installation RPM

The myvertica link : https://my.vertica.com/download/vertica/community-edition/
Shows this link: "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and 7"
But the file download only indicates RHEL6?

Am I to assume that file works for both RHEL6 and RHEL7?
If so, how about you remove the "RHEL6"?

    Yes, the vertica-8.1.1-0.x86_64.RHEL6.rpm package can be installed on RHEL7. If it'll help you feel more comfortable, run this command after downloading:

    mv vertica-8.1.1-0.x86_64.RHEL6.rpm vertica-8.1.1-0.x86_64.RHEL6and7.rpm

    Hi, Vertica 8.1.x CE is no longer available for download as Vertica 9.0 has replaced it. You can still grab the Community Edition 8.1.1 Virtual Machine.

    Is there a particular reason why you'd want 8.1.1-0? 9.0 has a lot of cool features to play around with :D

    We need to upgrade from 8.0.X to 9.0.1 so we need the 8.1.X rpm to upgrade... where can we download it?

    @cverdes - You can't download the 8.1.x RPM for Vertica CE. Only the latest version (9.1.0) is available from the web site.

    Are you working with a sales rep from Vertica? If so, I can reach out to them to figure out how to help you get upgraded.
