As reported by Steve Timm:

Distributed with the glideinwms factory rpm is a script called 

It contains the following case statement

    case "$req_os" in
      rhel4 ) v=4 ;;
      rhel5 ) v=5 ;;
      rhel6 ) v=6 ;;
      * ) echo "Unsupported GLIDEIN_REQUIRED_OS RHEL variant '$req_os'"; exit 1;;

In other words there is no way to set GLIDEIN_REQUIRED_OS = rhel7 in your factory config and make it work.
It will kick it out.

Most current cms-based SL7 resources set "any" and let singularity do the picking.  I am not sure if I can make that work on AWS
or not.  how do i test?

As I replied to Steve:
- I found no in the GWMS code
- and no string "Unsupported GLIDEIN_REQUIRED_OS RHEL" or reference to rhel4

Is his a script that was once in the code and was not removed in an update or is it coming from somewhere else?
Steve should verify where is coming from

I found a 3 year old ticket

Marco, is this info useful? If so any reason why Glideinwms cannot make this part of the package?
