Replication with different operating system versions/ same percona version

We are moving from centos7 to oracle linux 8(according to oracle it is 100% binary compatible with centos and rhel) but doing a the replication side first then the production side a month later.

Is there any issue if the operating systems are different?

I was able to simply install the percona version for oracle linux 8 in development and start up the the dev database without doing anything, so I’m guessing replication should work ok.


MySQL replication is a mysql protocol and has nothing to do with the OS. You can replicate from CentOS->MacOS->Windows->OEL and be just fine.
