1 Basic support is no longer available. If you still have a Basic contract, your terms of service remain at 2 business days for web support until its expiration date.


3 In order to provide you with 24x7 coverage, Red Hat requests that you identify a dedicated point of contact who will be available until the issue is resolved. NOTE: Severity 2 issues are not automatically set to 24x7 coverage after filing a support case, and 24x7 coverage should be explicitly requested if applicable. For more information, please refer to the following Knowledgebase Solution: Why is there no "24/7" option for Premium Severity 2 when opening a case via the Customer Portal?
