To facilitate bringing our users the best combination of functionality and 
usability, IBM BigFix Patch will deprecate the following non-native tools 
sites for CentOS Linux on January 31, 2017.
Patches for CentOS 5
Patches for CentOS 6

After the deprecation date, BigFix Patch will no longer provide content 
and support for these sites. The deprecated sites will no longer be 
available on the License Overview dashboard.

If you are subscribed to these sites for patching, we encourage you to 
migrate at your earliest convenience to the Native Tools versions of these 
operating systems. Native Tools versions are more efficient, can handle 
third-party packages, and provide a means to use custom repositories.

Action to take:
Subscribe to the native tools sites versions of the operating systems 
whose sites are getting deprecated.
Patches for CentOS 5  Native Tools site
Patches for CentOS 6  Native Tools site

Does the site deprecation cause any additional impact?
The deprecation of the sites affect the baselines and custom sites that 
are associated with the non-native sites. While you can still see the 
source Fixlets, no new content will be provided and the sites will no 
longer be visible in the License Overview dashboard. You must create new, 
separate baselines with the native tools sites.
