Agree with Kenny on this one but in saying that, I am sure it will work. You are just going to run a completely unsupported and tested configuration. I don't know what Cisco TACs response would be, vendors may give a "best effort" response if you open a case. Or they may just shut the door and say this OS is not supported, sorry we cannot help you. Is that an acceptable risk to your business? I mean you are already running an unsupported OS per se. You need community support and rely on your Linux administrators expertise. Don't forget CentOS is basically RHEL with some minor differences. You may even find that Cisco UCS drivers are already included in the CentOS image. Have you checked that?
Works perfectly. "Support" is a fuzzy term. I think many places can get by just fine without official OS support and that's one of the great things about CentOS is that there is a large community around it. Here's a guide I wrote for making it work with vMedia policies. Works great and nearly identical for RedHat and CentOS:
Looking at the support matrix for UCS C series, I see that Centos 7 is supported with caveats, one being that it has only been tested with a pre-defined configuration. Any idea how one can get details of that pre-defined configuration?

Is it supported or NOT supported? It's a frequently asked question.
