1. Summary:

This is the final notification for the retirement of Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 7.2 Extended Update Support (EUS). This notification applies only to
those customers subscribed to the Extended Update Support (EUS) channel for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode EUS (v. 7.2) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server EUS (v. 7.2) - ppc64, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

In accordance with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Errata Support Policy,
Extended Update Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 was retired as of
November 30, 2017, and active support is no longer provided. Accordingly,
Red Hat will no longer provide updated packages, including Critical Impact
security patches or Urgent Priority bug fixes, for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
7.2 EUS after November 30, 2017. In addition, on-going technical support
through Red Hat's Customer Experience and Engagement will be limited as
described under "non-current minor releases" in the Knowledge Base article
located here https://access.redhat.com/articles/64664 after this date.

We encourage customers to migrate from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 to a
more recent version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. As a benefit of the Red
Hat subscription model, customers can use their active subscriptions to
entitle any system on any currently supported Red Hat Enterprise Linux
release.
