The release notes say glibc 2.13 or later is needed to run LC 8 and 9 in 
Linux. You can check the installed version in a shell locally, or using 
ssh on a remote machine, with this command:

          ldd --version

The first line it returns tells you the version. On my desktop it 
returns this, showing glibc is version 2.27:

ldd (GNU libc) 2.27

I have a CentOS 7 server running glibc 2.17 and LC server works there. 
It looks like CentOS 6 ships with 2.12 which won't work.

Good luck!
