1. Summary:

This is the final notification for the retirement of Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 6.5 Telecommunications Update Support (TUS). This notification
applies only to those customers subscribed to the Telecommunications Update
Support (TUS) channel for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server AUS (v. 6.5) - x86_64

3. Description:

In accordance with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Errata Support Policy,
Telecommunications Update Service for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 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 6.5 TUS 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 6.5 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.
