4.4. Post-Installation

The following sections outline configuration considerations after installation.

4.4.1. Installing Behind a HTTP Proxy: Post-Configuration

Once the installation is complete, modify your settings in the /etc/rhn/rhn.conf file:
server.satellite.http_proxy = <http-proxy-fqdn>
server.satellite.http_proxy_username = <proxy-username>
server.satellite.http_proxy_password = <proxy-password>

You will also need to update the /etc/rhn/rhn.conf file to include the parent parameter satellite.rhn.redhat.com:
server.satellite.rhn_parent = satellite.rhn.redhat.com


Alternatively, if you are using the Red Hat Network Satellite web interface, log in as a user with Administrator privileges. Browse to AdminRed Hat Network Satellite ConfigurationGeneral. From here, enter the HTTP Proxy settings, and toggle the Disconnected Red Hat Network Satellite option.
Restart the Satellite service:
service rhn-satellite restart
Reactivate the Satellite as a connected Satellite:
rhn-satellite-activate --rhn-cert=<path-to-cert>
You should now have a connected Red Hat Network Satellite that will work behind an HTTP proxy.
