- Red Hat Satellite
Quick question (I hope!).
I just set up a new Satellite server with an online installation - i.e. it did "yum update" just fine and did "yum install satellite" just fine. So the server is able to communicate with Redhat, generally speaking.
To get out to Redhat, the server needs to go through a proxy server, so I put the proxy settings in /etc/rhsm/rhsm.conf and in /etc/environment.
When I go to get the initial rpm repositories though (in Content | RPM repositories), I'm getting "connection refused - connect (2) for "cdn.redhat.com" port 443" errors.
I did a tcpdump packet capture on the Satellite server and it appears the traffic is ignoring the proxy server and trying to go directly to the *.redhat.com and the *.Akamai websites without going through the proxy.
I also did a packet capture from the proxy server and the traffic never gets to the proxy server.
So, it looks like whatever application trying to get the rpm data isn't reading the proxy settings in the rhsm.conf file or the /etc/environment file. Is there another location where the proxy information needs to be entered?
