In all likelihood, yes ... however is a RedHat service
and most likely only supplied to RHEL customers seeking PCI-DSS
compliance along with direct support via their service contract.

If, however, this particular case actually deals with CentOS systems
and not RHEL, then the OP has elected to forego that type of
professional service contract from the vendor in order to do it

Which brings us either back to this thread, or a business decision at
their end regarding whether or not bring their systems back to RHEL
(it requires changing two files, IIRC, assuming they haven't massively
modified things) and paying RedHat whatever it takes to get the job
done.  I cannot predict which they will choose, nor am I willing to
make a recommendation solely on what's been presented here.

Still, the OP wanted options and now they've been provided.  :)
