ANSWER
  1. How should upgrade of existing ScaleArc on CentOS 6.6 or 6.7 be handled?
    Existing ScaleArc appliances on CentOS 6.6 or 6.7 are expected to be on version 3.10.1.2 or lower. A 'PKG' upgrade through the GUI upgrade path should transparently upgrade CentOS to 6.8 in addition to ScaleArc upgrade.

  2. What is the required version of CentOS for 3.11.0.2 RPM install & where to get it?
    CentOS 6.8 "minimal server" version is required to perform ScaleArc 3.11.0.2 RPM install. It can be downloaded from https://www.centos.org/
    Installations from Scalearc ISO images are equivalent to installing a CentOS 6.8 "minimal server" ISO image, then installing a Scalearc RPM by running the "custom_install.sh" script.
    Any other version of CentOS6.8 (such as "full development workstation") is not recommended as Scalearc upgrades a number of packages above the level that is shipped with CentOS 6.8 "minimal server" installations. As a consequence, there is a risk of version mismatches on optional RPMs that might be installed with other ISO images of CentOS (e.g. a "full development workstation" installation that seems to deliver every available optional RPM).

  3. What if there is only CentOS 6.6 available for install yet 3.11.0.2 is desired?
    In such special circumstances, it is recommended to install ScaleArc 3.10.1.2.3 first (previous GA release) and then upgrade to 3.11.0.2.
