BigFix Patch is pleased to pre-announce the release of an enhanced download plug-in for Red Hat. The new download plug-in uses Red Hat Subscription Management (RHSM) to download patches from a vendor’s website to the BigFix server.
The RHSM download plug-in will be available in the Manage Download Plug-ins dashboard as a new plug-in entry called RHSM Plug-in. All patch Fixlets are updated to use the RHSM Plug-in. The RHEL Plug-in will still be available to allow customers to use the Fixlets that are in custom sites. However, the RHEL Plug-in will no longer be supported for Red Hat 6 and Red Hat 7 (x86 and x86-64) when the RHSM Plug-in is released.

Actions that you need to take BEFORE the release:
RHEL 6 users with existing baselines need to create new baselines to use the new Fixlets. RHEL 7 users with existing baselines do not need to create new baselines.
