RedHat support for WLSE converted to WCS/RHEL4

I've converted my WLSE appliance to WCS 4.1.83 as part of my conversion to LWAP and a new WiSM. During the conversion of the WLSE, RedHat 4 was installed.

What is the story with patches and so on with the OS? Is it hardened? Is it maintained by downloads from Does it contain a license and support contract for accessing RedHat Network, and downloading patches from RedHat?

Do I need to buy a redhat support license? Can I install the latest Kernel and other patches without breaking my TAC support options?



Re: RedHat support for WLSE converted to WCS/RHEL4

You will need to buy Redhat support for it. Unlike Cisco "app"liances, the WCS is just the application sw and not a bundled OS. You will need to do your own hardening for the server.

all OS patches & licensing will be from Redhat.

Only the WCS licensing will be from Cisco.\

You could also use CentOS repositories for your patches.
