RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Comment 9 lmcgarry 2021-07-15 10:14:32 UTC
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?

Comment 10 Alexander Bokovoy 2021-07-15 11:17:21 UTC

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!
