Over the past months, many of you have been asking questions regarding the announced end-of-support of the Red Hat Network (RHN) on 31st July (today). Red Hat has later put a 3 month grace period in place, effectively ending support of RHN on 31st October. IBM has put together a set of detailed technical details here.
When you read the information carefully, note that IBM intends to release a Satellite 6.2 Pattern in the 3rd quarter of 2017. Today IBM only provides a Red Hat Satellite Server 5.6 Virtual System Pattern, but clients can already use the "Red Hat Satellite Six Service (External)" shared service to register VMs on PureApplication with an existing Red Hat Satellite Server 6.x. environment.
