This is the Six-Month notification for the retirement of Red Hat EnterpriseLinux 5.
This notification applies only to those customers subscribed to thechannel for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
In accordance with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Errata Support Policy, supportfor Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 will be retired on March 31, 2017, at the end ofProduction Phase 3. Until that date, customers will continue to receive Criticalimpact security patches and selected Urgent priority bug fixes for RHEL 5.11(the final RHEL 5 release). On that date, active support included with your RHELPremium or Standard subscription will conclude.
This means that customers willcontinue to have access to all previously released content.
In addition, limitedtechnical support will be available through Red Hat’s Global Support Services asdescribed in the Knowledge Base article available athttps://access.redhat.com/articles/64664 (under “non-current minor release”).However, we recognize that some customers will wish to remain on Red HatEnterprise Linux 5 even after the March 31, 2017 retirement date.
To meet thiscustomer requirement, Red Hat will offer customers the option to purchase theExtended Life Cycle Support (ELS) Add-On as an annually renewable subscription.This ELS Add-On provides customers with up to an additional three and a half(3.5) years of Critical impact security fixes and selected Urgent priority bugfixes for RHEL 5.11. RHEL 5 ELS coverage will conclude on November 30, 2020.Note that the RHEL 5 ELS Add-On is available for the x86 (32- and 64-bit)architecture only.
The RHEL 5 ELS Add-On is not available for the Itaniumarchitecture.To enjoy even more comprehensive product support, we encourage customers tomigrate from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 to a more recent version.
As a benefitof the Red Hat subscription, customers may, of course, use their activesubscriptions to entitle any system on any currently supported Red HatEnterprise Linux release.Details of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux life cycle can be found here:https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/
