Well, you need to purchase support from Red Hat in order to get updates from Red Hat. If you bought it and don't have the number, contact Red Hat.

This was covered pretty well here:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...el-as4-749802/

However, folks (not saying you, smartpatrol )always seem to want to 'get around' registering, and get something for nothing. There are benefits to registering, and options too. The options being:

- Run unsupported with no updates.
- Use the community supported CentOS

Or, you can try to 'get around' it, and be a thief. The link unSpawn provided is the way to go.

Well, it is also perfectly legal to run Red Hat Enterprise without paying for it usually after your support contract ends, they have restrictions and guidelines you can find on their site on what is necessary. CentOS also has great tutorials on how to migrate your RHEL server to use their mirrors for updates after you end your relations with Red Hat.
