Following the Red Hat Network (RHN) UI shutdown in July 2017, Red Hat is blocking new systems from registering to RHN beginning Oct. 31, 2017. Please refer to Red Hat Subscription Management Migration FAQ and Red Hat Subscription Management - Migrating to RHSM for more information.
We also have an online tool to assist you in selecting the most appropriate registration technology for your system - Red Hat Labs Registration Assistant.

  • Update entitlements allow individuals to register a single system, manage that system, receive priority access to RHN, and download ISOs (full versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux). For more details on Update entitlement refer to - Red Hat Network 5.0.0 Reference Guide - 1.1. Update

  • Management entitlements allow organizations to manage multiple systems both individually and in groups of systems. Management entitlements efficiently combine the power and flexibility of fine-grained control with the scalability to support thousands of systems. For more details on Management refer to - Red Hat Network 5.0.0 Reference Guide - 1.2. Management

  • Provisioning entitlements are applied to systems that have a Management base entitlement. The Provisioning entitlement allows easy deployment of new systems using kickstarts, package rollbacks, and configuration file management. For more details on Provisioning entitlement refer to - Red Hat Network 5.0.0 Reference Guide - 1.3. Provisioning

  • Monitoring entitlements available for Satellite customers, allow organizations to monitor the health of their Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems. Utilizing probes, Satellites with Monitoring-entitled clients can notify administrators of system performance issues before they become critical. Monitoring entitlements also require a base Management entitlement. For more details on Monitoring entitlement refer to - Red Hat Network 5.0.0 Reference Guide - 1.4. Monitoring
    NOTE Monitoring is deprecated as of Satellite version 5.8 and newer.

  • Note: These entitlements can also be referred as Service Levels on Red Hat Network (RHN) as well as Red Hat Network Satellite.*
