Red Hat Network Classic Hosted Retiring July 30, 2017

Related services: Software Licensing

Red Hat is retiring the Red Hat Network Classic Hosted (RHN Hosted) service on July 30, 2017. This impacts servers using Cornell's Red Hat proxy server to pull update patches. Emails have been sent to users of the proxy server; however, there are still machines that need to be moved.

CIT is making the recommendation that everyone with a Red Hat Enterprise 5 server upgrade to a newer version of CentOS or Red Hat so they can continue to receive security patches and bug fixes. 

We understand the need to find alternate options, as well as continued use of Red Hat, and we have explored some options based on our user’s current needs. These options and their details can be found at the Red Hat Retirement Information page.
