Discussion - satellite certificates and entitlement changes

Latest response

Hi Everyone,

  I was hoping to get some feedback about your experiences with the process regarding obtaining and activating satellite certificates.  I remember renewal time when I was a customer as an interesting time of the year.  That being said, I do think the process has been streamlined and is a ton better than it has been in the past.  


What I would like to know is, how is this evolution in your environment?  Is there something you feel that could be done to improve it, or are you comfortable with the process as it is.


The existing process is documented here: https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/solutions/11025  Do you refer to them, and if so, are they easy to follow and helpful?


Kind Regards,




Thanks for posting the link.  I had recently assisted a customer who needed a new cert/license to add new subscriptions for additional channels to their Satellite.  The process was easy enough, but it is nice to have a documented procedure to follow and forward to users.


An automated update and/or retrieval of the cert would be nice (like mentioned on the thread).


Thanks again.

Thanks for posting James!  I also like the idea of an automated update and/or retrieval.  


Thanks again,
