Thanks for the suggestion. It appears to require kernel patches and using
RHEL for the server (Lustre Support Matrix only has RHEL for the server).
Metadata and Object Storage Server require the Lustre patched Linux kernel,
Lustre modules, Lustre utilities and e2fsprogs installed. The clients
require the Lustre client modules, client utilities and, optionally,
the Lustre patched kernel.
