4.4. Configuring Client Systems to Use Certificates

After you have deployed the RPM file or the certificate to a client system, you need to edit the configuration files of the Red Hat Update Agent and the Red Hat Satellite Registration Client (if necessary) to use the new CA SSL public certificate file. You also need to update the configuration so that it connects to the appropriate Red Hat Proxy Server or Red Hat Satellite Server. The generally accepted location for that CA SSL public certificate is in the /usr/share/rhn directory.
The Red Hat Proxy Server and Red Hat Satellite Server both have Red Hat Satellite Bootstrap installed by default, which can greatly reduce these repetitive steps and simplify the process of registering and configuring client systems. See the Red Hat Satellite Getting Started Guide for details.
