If you are using Red Hat your "subscription" does expire.  Also there are licensing terms for SUSE Enterprise and other Linux variants.

Unfortunately there is no such native tool for Red Hat or Suse.  You may be able to find an open source hardware inventory tool that does some of what you need.

But how that changes GPL licensed product? You do not get updates and feel very guilty about empty pocekts of redhat, you even weep along the way... But still GPL licence is perpetual.
