Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Low: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 One-Year Retirement Notice
Advisory ID: RHSA-2016:0561-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2016-0561.html
Issue date: 2016-03-31
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

This is the One-Year notification for the retirement of Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5. This notification applies only to those customers subscribed to
the channel for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

In accordance with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Errata Support Policy,
support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 will be retired on March 31, 2017,
at the end of Production Phase 3. Until that date, customers will continue
to receive Critical impact 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 RHEL Premium or Standard subscription will
conclude. This means that customers will continue to have access to all
previously released (RHEL 4, RHEL 5, etc.) content. In addition, limited
technical support will be available through Red Hat's Global Support
Services as described in the Knowledge Base article available at
https://access.redhat.com/articles/64664 (search for "non-current minor
release").

However, we recognize that some customers will wish to remain on Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5 even after the March 31, 2017 retirement date. To meet
this customer requirement, Red Hat will offer customers the option to
purchase the Extended 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 bug fixes 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),
IBM Power Big Endian, and z Systems architectures. The RHEL 5 ELS Add-On is
not available for the Itanium architecture.

To take advantage of a more comprehensive product support, we encourage
customers to migrate from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 to a more recent
version. As a benefit of the Red Hat subscription, customers may use their
active subscriptions to entitle any system on any currently supported Red
Hat Enterprise Linux release.
