The following steps are tested on Bright 8.2 with CentOS7:

 

1. Enable Repositorry:

cat /etc/yum.repos.d/beegfs-rhel7.repo
[beegfs]
name=BeeGFS 7_1_3 (rhel7)
# If you have an active BeeGFS support contract, use the alternative URL below
# to retrieve early updates. Replace username/password with your account for
# the BeeGFS customer login area.
#baseurl=https://username:password@www.beegfs.io/login/release/beegfs_7_1/dists/rhel71
baseurl=https://www.beegfs.io/release/beegfs_7_1/dists/rhel71
gpgkey=https://www.beegfs.io/release/beegfs_7_1/gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-beegfs1
gpgcheck=0

2. Install beeond package

     <mountPoint>/cachefs</mountPoint>
