[olug] RHN- The end is near.......

Dear Red Hat Satellite customer,

This is a reminder that Red Hat Network (RHN) will shut down on January 31,
2019. This also marks the *end of life*
date for Red Hat Satellite 5.6 and 5.7, which depend on RHN to download
content to be distributed to your hosts. This is impactful beyond an
end-of-life event, so we recommend you take action as soon as possible.

*Customer Impact:*
After January 31, 2019, customers using Satellite 5.7 and earlier versions
will *no longer receive content updates from RHN* to their Satellite or
Proxy servers. You will not receive any technical support for Satellite 5.6
and 5.7. You will only receive updates for OS if registered via Red Hat
Subscription Manager and will be able to use Satellite 5.7 (or lower) with
previously downloaded content. You will still receive assistance for
upgrading to Satellite 5.8.

*Action Required:*
Satellite 5 users need to upgrade immediately to Satellite 5.8. This will
enable your Satellite server(s) to register via Red Hat Subscription
Management (RHSM) and continue retrieving content from the Content Delivery
Network (CDN). This is a simple and fast upgrade - don't delay.
TL;DR    If you are using Satellite, you need to be on 5.8 ASAP
