Changing a Linux 5.7 License/Entitlement


I have several running RHEL 5.7 implementations that came w/ another developers license for a quick review. Review was good so we want to change/update the license(s) w/ our own licensing/entitlements we've purchased.

Can't really find anything that explains how this might be done!

Yeah a quick call to Red Hat will probably be best.

Once you buy the RHEL Support license; you should be able to do an...

Code:
rhn_register
...on the systems and enter your account information and you'll see it appear in your "registered systems" when your log into RHN

As above, contact RH and they'll be glad to help.
On the other hand, if you feel sufficiently competent to do your own support, you could use Centos, which is a free rebuild of RHEL; includes updates but no support - your choice.
