15.7. Removing Life Cycle Environments from the Red Hat Satellite Capsule Server

There are multiple reasons to remove life cycle environments from the Red Hat Satellite Capsule Server. For example:
  • When life cycle environments are no longer relevant to the host systems
  • When life cycle environments have been incorrectly added to the Satellite Capsule Server
To remove a life cycle environment from the Satellite Capsule Server:
  1. Log in to the Satellite Server CLI as the root user.
  2. Choose the desired Red Hat Satellite Capsule Server from the list and take note of its id:
    # hammer capsule list
    The Satellite Capsule Server's details can be verified using the command:
    # hammer capsule info --id capsule_id_number
  3. Verify the list of life cycle environments currently attached to the Red Hat Capsule Server and note down the environment id:
    hammer capsule content lifecycle-environments --id capsule_id_number
  4. Remove the life cycle environment from the Satellite Capsule Server:
    # hammer capsule content remove-lifecycle-environment --id capsule_id_number --environment-id environment_id
    • --id is the Satellite Capsule Server's identification number.
    • --environment-id is the life cycle environment's identification number.
    Repeat this step for every life cycle environment to be removed from the Capsule Server.
  5. Synchronize the content from the Satellite Server's environment to the Satellite Capsule Server:
    # hammer capsule content synchronize --id capsule_id_number

The chosen environments are removed from the Satellite Capsule Server.
