Can we _definitely_ get free updates for Oracle Linux 8 until 2029?
Hi, I understand that yum.oracle.com hosts public repositories to allow end-user systems to download security updates and package RPM's for OL8 free of charge 😊
- Is Oracle committed to providing OL8 updates free of charge, right up until RHEL8's end date in 2029?
- To save internet bandwidth when updating lots of servers, is it permitted to make a private repo mirror of parts of yum.oracle.com using WGET or RSYNC?
- Is the uln-yum-mirror script supported on OL8 (as another way to make a private repo mirror)?
- uln-yum-mirror requires an Oracle Linux Support subscription CSI. What support product level is needed? Also, is it required to purchase Oracle Linux Support subscriptions for all our OL systems - or just for the single OL system that runs uln-yum-mirror?
Many thanks for any insights.
