10.2.2. Testing Self-Subscribed Satellite Functionality

Procedure 10.4. Testing Self-Subscribed Satellite Functionality

  1. Test the satellite-sync command by running the following command.
    # satellite-sync -l
    Running the satellite-sync command should return information indicating the Satellite connects to satellite.rhn.redhat.com. The output should resemble the following:
    16:50:22 Red Hat Network Satellite - live synchronization
    16:50:22    url: https://satellite.rhn.redhat.com
    16:50:22    debug/output level: 1
  2. Test using one of the following commands:
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, and 7:
      yum check-update
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4:
      up2date -l
    This should display information indicating that packages are downloaded from the Satellite rather than from the Red Hat Network Classic Hosted server.
