Wed Oct 11 22:11:28 PDT 2017

The 'Patches for CentOS 6 Native Tools' and 'Patches for CentOS 7' sites 
have been deprecated as of October 12, 2017. These sites will no longer be 
available from the License Overview Dashboard.

To continue to patch CentOS 6 and CentOS 7 systems, use the following 
Patches for CentOS6 Plugin R2
Patches for CentOS7 Plugin R2

The number of Fixlets in both sites may vary due to the archival of 
superseded Fixlets. For more information, see http://bit.ly/2wESl3q.

Actions to Take:
Enable the 'Patches for CentOS6 Plugin R2' and 'Patches for CentOS7 Plugin 
R2' sites and subscribe your endpoints to these sites.
Note: If the sites are not showing in the License Overview dashboard, 
update your license from the dashboard by clicking Check for license 
update, then run the BigFix Administration Tool.
Register the CentOS Plug-in R2 from the Manage Download Plug-ins 
dashboard, available from the 'Patching Support' site.
If you are using baselines or custom sites, you must create new ones with 
the previously listed R2 sites.
To save space, disable the 'Patches for CentOS 6 Native Tools' and 
'Patches for CentOS 7' sites, unregister the CentOS Plug-in, and deletethe 
the baselines and custom sites that are associated with the native tools
