Let me just check, you don't have RHEL subscriptions? if you do,
please contact RH support and provide me with the case number and
we'll look into it.

If you don't, and you can't see the value in having such a
subscription, then perhaps you can point me at the bug you filed in
CentOS or even RH bugzilla. There is no such thing as generic servers
with generic graphics, so it makes it hard to diagnose why you are
being a dick.
