5.4.2. Summary of Enhanced Entitlement Reporting Configuration

The following steps are required to set up your Red Hat Satellite 5.6 with Enhanced Entitlements Reporting features.
Installation of a Red Hat Satellite 5.6 server
See Chapter 4, Installation for installation steps.
Installation and Configuration of a Subscription Asset Manager server
Install a Subscription Asset Manager (SAM) 1.3 server on a different server from Satellite 5.6. When installing from ISO, make sure to run the install_packages script with the --enhanced_reporting to install the SAM 1.3 with Enhanced Entitlements Reporting:
# mkdir /mnt/cdrom
# mount -o loop SAM.iso /mnt/cdrom
# cd /mnt/cdrom
# ./install_packages --enhanced_reporting
# katello-configure --deployment=sam --user-pass=PASSWORD
# chkconfig mongod on
# service mongod start
Alternatively, to install the Subscription Asset Manager (SAM) 1.3 server using yum, run the following:
# yum install katello-headpin-all splice spacewalk-splice-tool ruby193-rubygem-splice_reports
# katello-configure --deployment=sam --user-pass=PASSWORD
# chkconfig mongod on
# service mongod start
Replace PASSWORD with a password of your choice. This password is required in later steps of Enhanced Entitlements Reporting configuration.
The SAM server contains all the tools necessary to collect reporting information from the Satellite 5.6 server. For more information on SAM installation, see the Using Subscription Asset Manager guide for version 1.3.

Important

Do not create organizations in Subscription Asset Manager when using in conjunction with Red Hat Satellite 5.6. The spacewalk-splice-tool creates the required organizations automatically.
Downloading Entitlement Certificate and Subscription Manifest
Register your Satellite 5.6 server on the Subscription Management Applications page of the Red Hat Customer Portal. This provides you with an Entitlement Certificate and a Subscription Manifest, both of which contain entitlements information for your Satellite 5.6 server. See Chapter 3, Entitlement Certificate for steps on generating an Entitlement Certificate and Subscription Manifest pair.
