Installing and Configuring Satellite Capsule Server

Satellite capsule server requirements The Satellite capsule system should ideally be a freshly provisioned system dedicated to just hosting the capsule server. This ensures that no other function will compete for system resources and possibly degrade the performance of the Satellite capsule. Specific hardware and software requirements need to be met in order to ensure that a Satellite capsule installation is successful and that the system performs well as workloads increase. The requirements are identical […]

Synchronizing Red Hat Content

Obtaining Red Hat content Accessing Red Hat content with subscription manifest One of the major roles of Satellite Server is to synchronize content from the Red Hat Content Delivery Network (CDN) to provide a local software repository of Red Hat content to subscribed clients. This Red Hat content can include packages, errata updates, kickstart trees, and installation ISO images. Satellite Server access to Red Hat Network content is governed by a subscription manifest. Users can obtain a […]
