4.6. MySQL Installation

This sections is applicable only if your RHN Satellite will serve Monitoring-entitled systems and you wish to run MySQL probes against them. Refer to the Probes appendix of the RHN Satellite Reference Guide for a list of available probes.
If you do wish to run MySQL probes, subscribe the Satellite to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux channel and install the mysql-server package either through the RHN website or by yum.
Two extra packages will also be downloaded in the transaction. These are needed for the mysql-server package to be installed and run successfully. Once finished, your Satellite may be used to schedule MySQL probes.
