Red Hat releases critical updates to Red Hat Satellite in the form of an Erratum.
For Red Hat Satellite systems connected to the Internet, apply these errata updates using the Red Hat Update Agent
with Red Hat Network. Since the Red Hat Satellite is subscribed to Red Hat Network during initial installation, run the
on the Red Hat Satellite or use the website at https://access.redhat.com
to apply the updates.
Apache RPMs do not restart the
httpd service upon installation. Conducting a full update of the Red Hat Satellite Server (such as with the command
yum update) might cause Apache to fail. To avoid this, make sure to restart the
httpd service after upgrading it.
For Red Hat Satellite systems not connected to the Internet, retrieve the packages using a customer account at https://access.redhat.com
. Then, apply these packages manually according to instructions in the Errata Advisory.
It is very important to read the Errata Advisory before applying any Red Hat Satellite Errata Updates. Some Errata Advisories require additional configuration steps to apply certain Red Hat Satellite updates, especially updates to the database. In such cases, the Advisory contains specific and detailed information about necessary steps required.
If you are attempting to only update the server's Red Hat Network Entitlement Certificate, such as to increase its number of client systems, see Chapter 5, Entitlements
