UPDATE: Kindly note that the deprecation date has been changed to December 31, 2016 instead of what was originally indicated in this post. Apologies for the inconvenience caused.
To facilitate bringing our users the best combination of functionality and usability, IBM BigFix Patch will deprecate the following non-native tools sites for CentOS Linux on January 31, 2017.
After the deprecation date, BigFix Patch will no longer provide content and support for these sites. The deprecated sites will no longer be available on the License Overview dashboard.
If you are subscribed to these sites for patching, we encourage you to migrate at your earliest convenience to the Native Tools versions of these operating systems. Native Tools versions are more efficient, can handle third-party packages, and provide a means to use custom repositories.
Action to take:
Does the site deprecation cause any additional impact?
