Details

This is the 1-month notification of the End Of Life plans for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3.

In accordance with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Errata Support Policy, the
regular 7 year life-cycle of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 will end on October
31, 2010.

After this date, Red Hat will discontinue the regular subscription services
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. Therefore, new bug fix, enhancement, and

longer be available for the following products:

* Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3

* Red Hat Desktop 3
* Red Hat Global File System 3

Customers still running production workloads on Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 3 are advised to begin planning the upgrade to Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5. Active subscribers of Red Hat Enterprise Linux already have access
to all currently maintained versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, as part
of their subscription without additional fees.

For customers who are unable to migrate off Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3
before its end-of-life date, Red Hat is offering a limited, optional
extension program referred to as RHEL 3 ELS. For more information, contact
your Red Hat sales representative or channel partner on this program.

Once you are eligible for subscribing to the RHEL 3 ELS channels, read the
Red Hat Knowledgebase article DOC-40489 at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-40489 for detailed information on how
to subscribe to the RHEL 3 ELS channels.
