Enabling Satellite with RHEL Developers Licence

Latest response

Hi
I'm working on a development project to transfer RHEL updates across a data diode. To that end, I signed up to the RHEL development licence and installed the RHEL Server 7.4, supplied with the registration.
When I run
subscription-manager list --available --all

As you can see, Satellite is not included in the list.
Is there any way to enable Satellite on a developers licence?

Many thanks

Hi Dominic,

Unfortunately Satellite is not included in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Suite subscription.

Thanks Christian, Do you know if this is a licence we could add to the development licence - obviously for a cost, or do we need a full subscription to RHEL? Cheers

Dominic

You're welcome Dominic,

Satellite is a standalone product on its own and can be used in combination with any RHEL edition.
Best would be to contact the sales team -> https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-satellite/.

Hello Dominic,

For a Satellite server only a Satellite subscription is needed to run it. It comes with an "embbeded" RHEL server subscription.

Still contact the regional sales team to see which Satellite subscriptions fits your needs, there are 2 types:

MCT0370 the "full product"

MCT1650 supports "50 clients"

Jan Gerrit Kootstra

Thanks All!

To be honest, it would be great if they had a 5 client licence for our purpose, but it's good to know there is some form of stepped licence.

Cheers

Dominic

Dominic, just wanting to understand here, was it your goal to attempt to attach a client system that has a Red Hat Developer's entitlement (a client server) to a Red Hat Satellite server? You're not attempting to run Red Hat Satellite server on a system registered with a developer's license, correct?

If you have a Red Hat Server (that is not a satellite server) with a developer's license, that you wish to connect to a Red Hat Satellite server that has it's own proper entitlement, you can create a manifest file using the Red Hat satellite certificate tool https://access.redhat.com/management/distributors (select satellite from the available tabs at that link) and include your Red Hat Developer's License as part of the manifest.

If you need a temporary use Satellite, you can contact your sales team, explain your situation to them, and (at least my sales team) they ought to work with you for a temporary use trial of Red Hat Satellite.

Kind Regards, -RJ
