Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

Description :

This is the 6-month notification for the retirement of Red Hat
Enterprise MRG Version 1 and Version 2 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

In accordance with the Red Hat Enterprise MRG Life Cycle policy, the
Red Hat Enterprise MRG products, which include the MRG-Messaging,
MRG-Realtime, and MRG-Grid, Version 1 and Version 2 offerings for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5 will be retired as of March 31, 2014, and
support will no longer be provided.

Accordingly, Red Hat will no longer provide updated packages,
including critical impact security patches or urgent priority bug
fixes, for MRG-Messaging, MRG-Realtime, and MRG-Grid on Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5 after that date. In addition, technical support
through Red Hat's Global Support Services will no longer be provided
for these products on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 after March 31, 2014.

Note: This notification applies only to those customers with
subscriptions for Red Hat Enterprise MRG Version 1 and Version 2 for

We encourage customers to plan their migration from Red Hat Enterprise
MRG Version 1 and Version 2 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 to Red Hat
Enterprise MRG Version 2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. As a benefit
of the Red Hat subscription model, customers can use their active Red
Hat Enterprise MRG subscriptions to entitle any system on a currently
supported version of that product.
