Hi LeongKO,

you don't need to change anything except from the "redhat-release" package.

This package contains only a text file that says "hi I'm RH-AS " (or ES or WS) (/etc/redhat-release)

You have to make sure that RedHat Network knows about the change, because that is the only real difference between ES and AS , namely the packages available from RHN.

It is possible that you need to unregister and register to make RHN update available channels.

We just did this same upgrade.

Install the redhat-release package from AS, then run rhn_register and register that host. It will then show up on the AS channel.
There are ZERO technical difference between ES and AS... That was from a RedHat person.
