Any info on a release date for Satellite 6.2 ??

Just installed 6.1.8

Any release notes yet?

RHBA-2016:1084 just released which is Satellite 6.1.9

Is there an ETA for Satellite 5.8 GA release? 5.8 is mentioned here:

6.2.2 is released -

6.1.10 date missing? And estimate for NEXT version of 6.1.x and 6.2.x


Both 6.2.3 - and 6.2.4 - were released, but they are missing from the above table...

The 6.2.6 update has been released and is missing from the above table -

Satellite 6.2.9 has been released. Please update.

Until the above table is updated the 6.2.9 update errata can be found at the following link:

according to this list 6.1.9 was released 5 days before 6.1.8


Thanks Rob, fixed now - should be 2016-05-17 not 2016-03-17, apologies for the typo!

when 6.3 will come out from beta ?

This table is missing the 6.3 Beta release of Dec 7 2017.

Is this article not getting updated anymore? 6.3.1 is already out since a few weeks.

Information for the releases Satellite 6.3.1 Update and Satellite 6.3.2 Update appears to be inaccurate.

May be a mistake in the 6.3.1 and 6.3.1 release date. year seems incorrect.

Added EOL dates , and sat6 to foreman mapping.

This document needs to be updated with 6.7.1 that is already released

This document needs to be updated with 6.7.3 as thats already released and have patched our satellite successfully

Abhinit, 6.7.3 release notes added. Thanks!

This doc needs an update for already released 6.7.4 Red Hat Satellite 6.7.4 Release

Any news on when Satellite 7 is released?

There is some information at .

Hi Fred,

I can only tell you 6.8.1 has been released this week.

There are no signs of a 7.0 beta yet, so I do not expect it before Christmas 2020 or even New Year 2020.


Jan Gerrit

A link to information on upcoming major versions would be helpful, i.e. Satellite 7.0.

Hi Redhat team

Citing that 6.9 is now conceived , it would be nice if the redhat satellite upgrade helper in is updated please as it still shows 6.8 as the target version.

Regards Abhinit

Hello, thanks for the feedback, we have just updated the upgrade helper. Enjoy!

According to this page, the 6.9 GA release should be available, but trying to upgrade results in

Following repositories are not available on your system: rhel-7-server-satellite-6.9-rpms

The 6.9 Tools repo also seems to be missing.

This happens even after refreshing the manifest.

Just a blind guess: won't subscription-manager refresh help? maybe followed by yum clean all; rm -rf /var/cache/yum/*?

I tried those things, of course.

In any case, the missing repos are there now.
