Comments 5 Posted In Red Hat Software Collections Insallation Satellite Latest response 2013-11-13T13:51:34+00:00 Hi All, I have installed RH server 5 (64-bit) and now want to install Satellite, but reading through the docs it states that 64-bit is not supported for Satellite. Is this correct ?

Current Satellite installations 'require' 64bit. Guru 6863 points 12 November 2013 3:51 PM email@example.com Community Leader It depends on the version of Satellite you are attempting to install, I believe. I currently have 5.5.0 running on RHEL 5.X x86_64. However, I believe we started with 5.4. Are you finding that there is no longer support for RHEL 5, or just RHEL 5 x86_64? I am in a bit of a similar situation. If our Satellite needed to be rebuilt, we could not simply start off with a RHEL 5 base and install Satellite 5.6 - as you can only download 5.6 for RHEL 6. We would need to start with RHEL 5 (@Base) and then install Satellite 5.5 and upgrade. Satellite 5.5 is available for RHEL 5 x86_64. Browse to access.redhat.com Downloads | Red Hat Network Products select 5.5 from the dropdown. Red Hat Network Satellite (RHEL5) 5.5 s390x, x86_64 Can you please reference the doc and the page/section that you found this? They may need to update their docs! ;-) Pro 484 points 12 November 2013 4:29 PM Jose Antonio Vico Palomino Here you can find the minimum requirements for the installation of Red Hat Satellite.
