How do I tell whether or not I have Red Hat Server or Workstation? I know my redhat release info is in /etc/redhat-release.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.9 (Tikanga)

I need to order an updated subscription, but do not know whether to ask for Workstation 5.

You can tell by looking at /etc/redhat-release. Here is how they look like on each system:

 Workstation:
 /etc/redhat-release
 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 6.2 Beta

 Client:
 /etc/redhat-release
 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.9 (Tikanga)

 Server:
 /etc/redhat-release
 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.9 (Tikanga)

  • So I renew the subscription based on client then. That's what you're saying. Jul 23 '14 at 19:35

You are running Workstation, Server release says "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server in /etc/redhat-release.

[root@archiware ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.5 (Santiago)

You can also try running rpm -q --whatprovides /etc/redhat-release.

[root@archiware ~]# rpm -q --whatprovides /etc/redhat-release
redhat-release-server-6Server-6.5.0.1.el6.x86_64
