- Red Hat has created a very useful app within their Customer Portal to help you upgrade your Red Hat Satellite 6.
- The web application has extra steps to help you with your specific Satellite 6 upgrade scenario.
- They mention at the Upgrade Helper page they created this to help prevent known issues.

It supports upgrade paths from 6.3 and higher, upgrading one minor release at a time.

Supported Upgrade Paths
You must perform the upgrade from each version to the next. Upgrading from the Beta to GA version is not supported.

-> V 6.8  -> V 6.9                                                                                                      -> V 6.7  -> V 6.8  -> V 6.9                                                                                            -> V 6.6  -> V 6.7  -> V 6.8  -> V 6.9                                                                                  -> V 6.5  -> V 6.6  -> V 6.7  -> V 6.8  -> V 6.9                                                                        -> V 6.4  -> V 6.5  -> V 6.6  -> V 6.7  -> V 6.8  -> V 6.9                                                              -> V 6.3  -> V 6.4  -> V 6.5  -> V 6.6  -> V 6.7  -> V 6.8  -> V 6.9    

I highly recommend using this tool. It is well thought out and it asks questions to provide tailored instructions to your specific satellite.
