Chapter 6. Documentation Changes

The following sections contain some high-level documentation changes for Red Hat Satellite 5.7.

6.1. Major Book Changes in the Installation Guide

  • Installation instructions split into three separate installation scenarios:
    • Satellite with Embedded Database
    • Satellite with Managed Database
    • Satellite with External Database (PostgreSQL or Oracle)
  • Entitlements Certificates content moved to its own chapter. This is a fairly important step and moving the content to a seperate chapter increases the visability and prominence.
  • New content for IdM authentication
  • New content for secure database communication for Satellites using Managed and External Database
  • New content for hosting a virtual machine on the Satellite server to use for a Subscription Asset Manager server when setting up Enhanced Reporting
