I have a Rhel 6.6 system.  I want to add a large terabyte array to the

I have downloaded a couple of xfsprogs rpm which are supposed to work on
rhel 6, but the glibc library they need is incompatible with that on the
system.

I have installed all the updates available to the system.

rpm -qa glibc
glibc-2.12-1.149.el6.i686

Same results when I try to install xfsprogs-3.1.1-14.el6.x86_64.rpm

Thanks for your help.
I wrote about this issue in 2011:

However, you CAN install the xfsprogs and xfs* packages from the CentOS
repositories. The downside, every time you like to update the system, you will
have to update manually. The way we solved this was to make our own repo for
the xfs utilities and we always snap them from CentOS.

I can also confirm, as already pointed out, that RHEL7 has it by default as
part of the rhel-7-server-rpms/7Server/x86_64 repo.

A simple followup: install the CentOS repo, then edit it to include *only* xfsprogs. That way, when you do a yum update, it will get only that from the CentOS mirror.
