Updating rhel 4
This appendix provides a procedure for upgrading a Red Hat cluster from RHEL 4 to RHEL 5.The procedure includes changes required for Red Hat GFS and CLVM, also.This quick guide will explain the steps you need to update Cent OS or upgrade Cent OS to the latest version.Use the “update” option to upgrade all of your Cent OS system software to the latest version with one operation.For more information about Red Hat GFS, refer to Global File System: Configuration and Administration.For more information about LVM for clusters, refer to LVM Administrator's Guide: Configuration and Administration.Recently, the latest version of Cent OS 7.3 was released.
This solution works for me, don´t know, if this is a solution for others.
If you are doing this on a production RHEL server, the simple rule is don't, don't do it.
For testing purpose, feel free to add the fedora repo or rpmforge or whatever gives you the latest one.

I am certain that a package like glibc will not be rebased to v3.
or Newer GLIBC for RHEL/Cent OS 5.x You probably won't find the libraries, etc.
