RHEL 7 will reach its End of Maintenance date on 30 June 2024, so now is the time to build and execute your upgrade plan. Your best defense against the risk of noncompliant Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems is upgrading to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 or 9. To help you do this, this session will run through a demonstration to show you the upgrade paths you will need to follow. We will outline why it’s important to upgrade, the tools you need to use and the help that is available to you, should you need it.  

We will demonstrate the upgrade process and explain what to watch out for. After this session you should be ready to put your upgrade plans into practice - so join us to see how it’s done.
