1. Summary:

This is the Six-Month notification for the retirement of Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 6.7 Extended Update Support (EUS). This notification applies only to
those customers subscribed to the Extended Update Support (EUS) channel for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server EUS (v. 6.7) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

In accordance with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Errata Support Policy,
Extended Update Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7 will be retired as
of December 31, 2018, and active support will no longer be 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 6.7 EUS after December 31, 2018. 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 6.7 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.

https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/
