Hello, what (all) do you mean by "agent" or "client"? You can surely build/provision a Host without either or all of:

  • katello agent aka goferd (allows package management via katello)
  • SSH keys (classic way to allow of Remote Execution)
  • puppet or Ansible client (for Host's management)
  • insights client (to identify and pro-actively remediate various threats)

You can have a Host with none of above clients - just uninstall (or dont install during provisioning) relevant packages. It just depends how much you want your Satellite to manage the Host.
