Dell sells OEM RHEL and standard (Red Hat) RHEL as a software reseller. 
In OEM RHEL, Dell provides all but the highest level (passing the 
highest level back to Red Hat ) support.  In standard RHEL, they are just 
selling you the same thing you would buy from Red Hat.  They would know 
when both are to expire, but ironically they are more in tune with when 
the standard RHEL that they sell you is set to expire.
