Red Hat Satellite Infrastructure Subscription (Beta)

Latest response

I see that our subscription is: Red Hat Satellite Infrastructure Subscription (Beta)
I was not the one who set this up. What does (beta) mean, and does it give you everything that a regular install of Red Hat Satellite install.

Hi Laura,

Beta means pre-release software - it is meant to be used for testing purposes only ... do NOT use it on production servers.
Does it give you everything that a regular install of Red Hat Satellite provides ? Yes, it does and maybe more, new features
might be included. Definitely included are bug and security fixes and enhancements, but again, it is pre-release software. :)

Regards,
Christian

This ^^^ The Satellite Infrastructure Subscription (Beta) subscription is intended for Beta/testing usage only. We (Red Hat) don't give those out automatically, Someone (who is an Organizational Admin) in your account explicitly requested them from the beta landing page during one of the Satellite Betas (such as the currently running Satellite 6.6 Beta).

There is a corresponding Satellite Infrastructure Subscription (without the beta) that should be used for production deployments.
