Sat 6 - Where to find servers that will need reboots after patching?

Latest response

In Satellite 5 you could pretty easily find the servers that needed reboots due to a patch requirement.

I am not finding that same kind of information in Sat6 (6.3).

I might be overlooking it, but could I get some assistance?

Thanks.

Hi John,

For Satellite 6.3 clients I am not sure, but there is a client package katello-host-tools-tracer. I use it with Satellite 6.5.2. That adds a tab to each content host called Trace and a line Trace to the Overview page. On the Overview it states that an action is need like reboot on the Trace tab you also see if a process needs to be restarted due to an update.
