1) Red Hat will continue to support RHN Satellite and Proxy versions 5.2

2) All versions of 5.0 and 5.1 are now EOL with this notice.

Though we are committed to the December 1st date for beginning the process
of decommissioning Satellite and Proxy support listed, we recognize that
our customers have woven these products very deeply into their processes
and may need some time to upgrade.

For upgrade purposes, please note the following dates:

* December 1st, 2012 - Satellite and Proxy support for listed versions
running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, ceased to be supported. Official
support ended. Only Severity 1 issues and upgrade assistance will be
addressed. Satellite and Proxy will continue to operate, but all
customers are encouraged to upgrade in a timely manner.

* March 1st, 2013 - Satellite and Proxy versions listed - active status
will be terminated. The Satellite and Proxy versions listed will enter an
inactive state. This includes no longer generating nor providing Satellite
Certificates to customers requesting them for these EOL product versions.

The overview for the Satellite Upgrade process starting point is outlined
here:

https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Network_Satellite/5.5/html-single/Installation_Guide/index.html#chap-Installation_Guide-Upgrades

For detailed instructions on upgrading Red Hat Network Satellite, please
refer to the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/satellite-upgrade/README file. This can
be found within the rhn-upgrade package. Before proceeding, it is
important to read the complete details, contained within the most current
rhn-upgrade package README file.

As with all Satellite upgrades, please ensure that known good backups are
available, especially of the database.

How to proceed:

* All affected Satellite and Proxy users must plan to upgrade to a newer
version prior to March 1st, 2013.

* If you have a Technical Account Manager, contact that person immediately
to discuss upgrade plans.

* Otherwise, contact support for assistance:

* Alternatively, Red Hat Consulting can be engaged to assist with a smooth
migration:
