  • Level 3 or "L3" subscriptions are subscriptions in which primary support, L1 & L2, is provided by your hardware vendor. Support for your L3 subscriptions are listed as "L3-only" in your Red Hat Customer Portal subscriptions page.

  • Your subscription provides access to all content on the Customer Portal: downloads and updates from Red Hat Network, videos, tech briefs, and much more.

  • If you require technical support and have a "Level 3" or "L3 Support" subscription for Red Hat Enterprise Linux or other Red Hat products, please contact your hardware vendor directly. Your hardware vendor has Red Hat Certified Engineers and/or Technicians on staff to help resolve your technical queries. For assistance diagnosing and resolving any problem, the hardware vendor may then escalate the issue to Red Hat.

  • For issues related to registration, please open a ticket with Red Hat directly.
