A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat Satellite

3.2. Locations

Locations divide organizations into logical groups based on geographical location.
Each location must be created and used by a single Red Hat customer account, however each account can manage multiple locations and organizations.
By default, Red Hat Satellite will have one location already created, called Default, which can be modified to suit your own installation, or deleted.

Important

If a new user is not assigned a default location their access will be limited. To grant the user systems rights, assign them a default location and have them log out and log back in again.
