This work has now been completed

 

We are updating/changing the lifecycle dates for RedHat Enterprise Linux (Server) product Major and Minor releases in Technopedia (Full details attached).

End of Life and Obsolete date Changes for major versions:

We are going to consider the Maintenance Support or Maintenance Support 2 phase as EOL and Obsolete date for all Major versions i.e., RHEL 7, 8 and 9

Reference for lifecycle dates - https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata

 

Example:

For Major Version RHEL 7, EOL and Obsolete will be “6/30/2024”

End of Life and Obsolete date Changes for Minor versions:

We are going to consider the successive (Next) release GA date as the End of life of the current Release date and Obsolete will be the major version Obsolete date.  

Example:

For Minor Version 7.1, EOL will be “11/19/2015” (GA date of 7.2) as per      https://access.redhat.com/articles/3078  and  Obsolete will be “6/30/2024” as per https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata

Note: For the final minor release EOL and Obsolete will be the same i.e., OBS date of Major Release

Example:

For the final Minor Release 7.9 under Major version group 7, EOL and Obsolete will be “6/30/2024” which is the OBS date of Major Release RHEL 7.

 

Release with name (RHEL X) End of Life and Obsolete date Changes:

We are going to consider the EOL and OBS dates of the RHEL X major version.

Example:

Release x.x (RHEL 7) EOL and Obsolete will be “6/30/2024” which is the EOL/OBS date of RHEL Major Release 7.

 

This change will impact customers who rely upon Technopedia Lifecycle dates from RHEL to manage their EOL and EOS/ Obsolete program and customers who rely on Technopedia Product ID/Release ID & Names and discovered previously mapped data to these packages. The main changes will be to the RHEL Release Lifecycle Date for Version Groups 7, 8, and 9 and the Release Lifecycle Date of Version x.x (RHEL X) in Technopedia.

 

Customers should expect these changes on OCT 13, 2022
