This is the One-Month notification for the retirement of Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 4 Extended Life Cycle Support Add-On (ELS). This notification applies only
to those customers subscribed to the Extended Life Cycle Support (ELS) channel

In accordance with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Errata Support Policy, Extended
Life Cycle Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 will be retired as of March
31, 2017, and active support will no longer be provided. Accordingly, Red Hat
will no longer provide updated packages, including Critical impact security
patches or Urgent priority bug fixes, for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 ELS after
