4.2. Scenario 2: Managed Database Installation

This scenario details the steps for a Managed Database installation. You would use a Managed Database Installation to create a federated Red Hat Satellite infrastructure with the database separate from the Satellite server. The Managed Database also contains basic Satellite administration tools to maintain the database.
This scenario requires two hosts with Red Hat Enterprise Linux installed as the operating system:
  • One host for the Satellite Server
  • One host for the Managed Database
