If you or your customer cannot afford the Red Hat support, you should build a server based on the four upstream projects on CentOS. It might be difficult, I have not tried it. Spacewalk might be an alternative, read the documentation about the limits, check for compatibility issues. Regards, Jan Gerrit ST Newbie 15 points 26 September 2019 12:40 PM Satellite Team Also, it is to be noted that the Satellite subscriptions INCLUDE RHEL for the installation, so there is no reason to not use it. Guru 8390 points 26 September 2019 12:49 PM ir. Jan Gerrit Kootstra Community Leader @Satellite Team, The classic Satellite subscription does not exist anymore. RHEL with Smart Management subscription is the requirement to get a set of free Satellite entitlements. The product Satellite contains a RHEL entitlement. An entitlement is a right to install. A subscription is the official support contract.

I am sure we can make an arrangment to get them the necessary subscriptions to allow them to install on RHEL. SM Newbie 15 points 26 September 2019 12:57 PM Sid-Ahmed Mecheri Thanks for your replies. I think the customer will finaly go for Foreman/Katello, the upstream projects. But he also wants to manage his rhel VMs on it.

Could he be able to sync RedHat content (Repos) to Foreman machine (installed on CentOS7) supposing that he has a subscription manifest ?
