Need of glibc-2.14 in Centos 7 for armlmd (license server) to work ??


Currently, we have our license server on Centos 7.8. Still, we are starting vendor daemon with some wrapper of glibc 2.14.

Is it still required or best practice to use only 2.14 as 2.17 is available by default on Centos 7?

# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS Linux release 7.8.2003 (Core)

# cat /scratch/admin/vendor_daemons/armlmd_wrapper
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/utils/glibc-2.14/lib
exec /home/utils/glibc-2.14/lib/ /scratch/admin/vendor_daemons/armlmd_11.17.2.0 "$@"

# ldd --version
ldd (GNU libc) 2.17
