how can I move redhat licency from one server to another (new one)?

Latest response

I've decided to upgrade my server.
I have active self-support RHEL subscription.
Can I use it on a new server?
How should I do this?

  1. Install RHEL on a new server.
  2. Unsubscribe old server and uninstall RHEL.
  3. Subscribe new server.

Should I do something like this? Will it work? Or I have to buy new subscription for a new server?



Officially you should switch step 1 and 2.
If you need to migrated data, request an evaluation subscription for one of the servers for the migration project.

Thanks, assuming that I've unsubscribed and uninstalled RHEL 7 from Server 1 how soon can I use subscription on Server 2? Immediately?

yes once the unsubscribe is completed, you can subscribe the new one.

I forgot to "unsubscribe" my previous server. This is what I did

  1. I "secure erase" previous server (forgot to unsubscribe) and sold it to another guy.
  2. Now I'm installing RHEL 7 on a new server.

I wonder if I can somehow on website manage my subscriptions to remove subscription for my previous intallation? Or I can install RHEL 7 and manage subscriptions from there?
