2.2.3. Additional Requirements

Additional hardware requirements include:
  • The Stand-Alone Database must not run on the same server as the RHN Satellite.
  • The package repository may be any large storage device easily and securely accessed by the other components. The space requirements depend on the number of packages that will be stored. Default Red Hat channels contain approximately 3 GB of packages each, and that size grows with each synchronization; customers must also account for the space requirements of packages in their own private channels. Whatever storage solution the customer chooses, its mount point may be defined during the installation process.
If you are installing RHN Satellite with Embedded Database, skip to Section 2.4, “Additional Requirements”.
