Should we keep this as a known issue in the 8.5 release notes? Or is it ok to remove as the main docs have also been updated with the correct information?

I think we should keep it in the release notes for RHEL 8.5. The change happened in RHEL 8.4 due to FIPS support but the particular effect on the Windows Server versions before 2012 was identified after RHEL 8.4 was released. Thus, it would be good to keep this change highlighted in the release notes.

Comment 11 Lucie Vařáková 2021-07-28 13:11:28 UTC

I uncommented the id of this bug in corn.yaml for 8.5. However, I'm changing requires_doc_text flag to ? because I think the text needs a little rework for 8.5. The current text kind of implies that the support is out *only* in 8.4, which, I believe isn't the case. If I'm wrong, please correct me. 

Thank you!
