I guess this is the document to start with:


The RHEL 6 to 7 changes are:

- systemctl is preferred over service/chkconfig
- firewalld is preferred over iptables
- the SELinux policy problem might have been fixed

I have no idea which parts of the AFS information needs to revised.
Would it be a big deal for an experienced user to spin up an SL-7.5
