Yes, It is available for download.

You can download it from Redhat official website.
You will have to log in from your Redhat account and then go to Download section, select Redhat OS -> select version -> select architecture and then select the Binary DVD.

Also, you can try below link for downloading:
https://access.redhat.com/downloads/...oduct-software

Hope that helps.

Hello and welcome to the forum

Please note that if you haven't paid for a support subscription with Red Hat, you will not have access to any security updates or other software. If you are unable or don't wish to obtain one, take a look at CentOS, which is free and nearly identical to RHEL.

Regards...

Hello - thanks for the replies - I was able to find the packages under the software download link page.

I have to use version 6.7 due to application restrictions.


Thanks again!

for redhat 6.7 then you will need to LOCK it at 6.7 and pay EXTRA to redhat for the license

but the current 6.8 will work for 99.999999999999999999999999% of the time

and CentOS 6.7 is UNSUPPORTED!!!! there are and never will be any updates and fixes for 6.7

Also, if you download and install the RHEL 6.7 iso, what you will have is version 6.7 without all of the updates that were released for 6.7 prior to the release of version 6.8. Some of those were important security updates.

So is there a typical upgrade procedure for upgrading the kernel and OS version?

I am currently running RHEL 6.5 (Santiago) - kernel-2.6.32-504.el6.x86_64 and want to get to RHEL 6.7 and kernel-2.6.32-573.el6.x86_64.

Thanks,

Joseph

Unless you have deliberately locked yourself to a particular point release, a simple "yum update" will bring you up to the latest point release for your major version. I'm not sure how to stop at 6.7 and not go on to 6.8.

Typically that is what I normally do - but since my application is version specific - I didn't want to yum update.

I performed a yum list kernel* and it would take me past the version that is required for the application:

Available Packages
kernel.x86_64 2.6.32-642.3.1.el6 updates
kernel-abi-whitelists.noarch 2.6.32-642.3.1.el6 updates
kernel-debug.x86_64 2.6.32-642.3.1.el6 updates
kernel-debug-devel.i686 2.6.32-642.3.1.el6 updates
kernel-debug-devel.x86_64 2.6.32-642.3.1.el6 updates
kernel-devel.x86_64 2.6.32-642.3.1.el6 updates
kernel-doc.noarch 2.6.32-642.3.1.el6 updates
kernel-firmware.noarch 2.6.32-642.3.1.el6 updates
kernel-headers.x86_64 2.6.32-642.3.1.el6 updates

What you should be able to do is run "yum --releasever=6.5 update" to get all of the release 6.5 updates, then repeat with "--releasever=6.6" and "--releasever=6.7". You might be able to get away with going directly to version 6.7, but there is a possibility of missing some earlier updates for packages (if any) that did not get a subsequent update for version 6.7.
