1. Summary:

This is the 30 day notification of the End Of Life plans for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Description:

In accordance with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Errata Support Policy,
the 7 year life-cycle of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 will end on February
29, 2012 and your subscription services for that version will change.
Active Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscribers using Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 4 will have the option to upgrade to currently supported versions
of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and receive the full benefits of the
subscription.

After February 29, 2012, Red Hat will discontinue technical support
services as well as software maintenance services for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 4 meaning that new bug fixes, security errata and product
enhancements will no longer be provided for the following products:

* Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES 4
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS 4
* Red Hat Desktop 4
* Red Hat Global File System 4
* Red Hat Cluster Suite 4

Customers who choose to continue to deploy Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
offerings will continue to have access via Red Hat Network (RHN) to the
following content as part of their active Red Hat Enterprise Linux
subscription:

* Previously released bug fixes, security errata and product
  enhancements.
* Red Hat Knowledge Base and other content (whitepapers, reference
  architectures, etc) found in the Red Hat Customer Portal.
* All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 documentation.

Customers are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the upgrade
benefits of their active Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription and
migrate to an active version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux such as
version 5 or 6.

For customers who are unable to migrate off Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
before its end-of-life date and require software maintenance and/or
technical support, Red Hat offers an optional support extension called
the Extended Life-cycle Support (ELS) Add-On Subscription. The ELS
Subscription provides up to three additional years of limited Software
Maintenance (Production 3 Phase) for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 with
unlimited technical support, critical Security Advisories (RHSAs) and
selected Urgent Priority Bug Advisories (RHBAs). For more information,
contact your Red Hat sales representative or channel partner.

Details of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux life-cycle can be found on the
Red Hat website: https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/
