Transferring subscriptions

How do I transfer a subscription to someone else's account within my company?

To transfer subscriptions between accounts, you must get approval from the Organization Administrator that holds the subscriptions to transfer. Contact your regional Customer Service Team to request a subscription transfer.

For more information on subscription transfers, see How to transfer subscriptions from one account to another account.

We renewed our subscriptions through a vendor, and they are now in the wrong account. How do I fix this?

To transfer the subscriptions to the correct account, you can use either of these two options

  • Contact your vendor and explain that the subscriptions were placed in the wrong account. Vendors have a procedure to follow to resolve this issue.

-or-

  • Contact Customer Service. We can send the Transfer Approval Request email to the correct Organization Administrator.

If you have any other questions, contact Customer Service.

How can we transfer subscriptions to a separate entity?

Because the subscription transfer is between two separate entities, you need to complete an Assignment Transfer:

  1. Customer Service sends an Assignment Letter that both parties involved with the transfer must sign.
  2. Once Red Hat receives the Assignment Letter signed by both parties, we forward the information to our Legal and Finance Teams for approval
  3. Once these teams have completed the approval, they process the Assignment Transfer.

Note: This process can take 7-10 business days from the day we receive the signed Assignment Letter.
To initiate the Assignment Transfer process, contact Customer Service in your region.

Be sure to have the following information with you:

  • Name, job title and contact information (email and phone number) of the approved signee for each account
  • Physical Address for each company
  • Quantity and contract number of the subscription being transferred

Purchasing Subscriptions

How do I renew my subscriptions on the Customer Portal?

Only subscriptions initially purchased through the Red Hat Webstore can be renewed online. If you see the Renewal Information link next to a subscription this means it was purchased from a vendor or a Red Hat Sales Associate and must be renewed by the same means. To renew your subscriptions online, follow these steps:

  1. Log into the Customer Portal.
  2. Click My Subscriptions
  3. Click Ready to renew.
  4. Click the Renew Now link, located next to the subscription to renew. (If the subscription has been expired for fewer than 30 days, click the Recently Expired tab to view those subscriptions.)
  5. Continue to checkout.

Note: Only an Organization Administrator can purchase or renew subscriptions online. If a subscription has been expired for more than 30 days, it is no longer eligible for renewal. You must purchase a new subscription.

If you are having issues activating your Dell Service Tag, send an email to Customer Service in your region with the following information:

  • Your account number or login ID
  • A copy of your Dell packing slip
  • A screen shot of the error message

Once we have that information, we can provide a subscription number for you to activate.

I am not able to activate my subscription purchased from HP for my server or workstation. How can I get my subscription?

For questions or problems activating subscriptions, send an email to gbs.ams.licensingsupport@hp.com. When contacting HP, have your HP Order number, Service Agreement Identifier (SAID) number, and product ID. You also need to provide them with a brief explanation of the issue. You can locate your SAID number on your HP Support Agreement. Once HP has that information, they can contact you with assistance.
