2.2. Installing Red Hat Satellite with an ISO Image

Prerequisite

ISO installations require imported Red Hat GPG keys before installation. Run the following command as root prior to running the installation script:

# rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-release
The following procedure details how to install Satellite Server on a host through ISO.
  1. Download the ISO image from the Red Hat Satellite 6 Channel in the Red Hat Customer Portal.
  2. As the root user, mount the ISO image to a directory:
    # mkdir /media/iso
    # mount -o loop [iso_filename] /media/iso
    
  3. Change directory to /media/iso.
  4. Run the installer script in the mounted directory:
    # ./install_packages
Result:

Satellite Server is installed on your host system.

You need to configure your Satellite Server before use. See either Section 2.3, “Configuring Red Hat Satellite Manually” or Section 2.4, “Configuring Red Hat Satellite with an Answer File” for more information.
