Capsule server as puppet client of Satellite

Latest response

I have been building and configuring a new Satellite and Capsule environment for my current client, am nearly ready for handover to their BAU team and noticed something I couldn't find a clear answer for.

The Capsule server I have built, is using itself as a Puppet master and Puppet CA, with the Puppet Environment being the "production" one.

The Capsule servers Puppet CA is also listed under itself in the Capsules section of the Satellite Web UI

Is this correct? Or should it be using the Satellite server as its Puppet master and CA?

Any guidance/info appreciated, I couldn't find anything specific in the Red Hat support site or in Google searches...


Hi Chris,

That is correct. The external capsule serves as Puppet master and CA for hosts connected to it. Satellite still controls the main configuration for Puppet on all Capsules. Management of classes, environments etc.

Satellite is still Puppet master and CA for hosts directly connected to it.
