This is the final notification for the retirement of Red Hat Enterprise Linux
7.1 Extended Update Support (EUS). This notification applies only to those
customers subscribed to the Extended Update Support (EUS) channel for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.1.

In accordance with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Errata Support Policy, Extended
Update Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 was retired on March 31, 2017,
and active support is no longer provided. Accordingly, Red Hat will no longer
