3.3. Enabling Red Hat Repositories

This section describes how to enable the required Red Hat repositories in order to support provisioning a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 host. Select the required release to suit your deployment. This procedure enables the following repositories:
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Server (Kickstart): This allows Satellite to kickstart a host. This is roughly analogous to a Satellite 5 "kickstart tree."
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Server (RPMs): This provides ongoing content and errata. This is roughly analogous to the Satellite 5 "rhel-x86_64-server-6" channel.
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Server - Satellite Tools (RPMs): This provides supporting software, such as Puppet and katello-agent. This is roughly analogous to the Satellite 5 "rhn-tools-rhel-x86_64-server-6" channel.

Procedure 3.3. To Enable Red Hat Repositories:

  1. Select ContentRed Hat Repositories.
  2. On the Kickstarts tab, navigate to Red Hat Enterprise Linux ServerRed Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Server (Kickstart) and select the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Server Kickstart x86_64 6.5 (or later) repository.

    Important

    Do NOT select the 6Server Kickstart repository; future versions of Satellite hide these unnecessary Kickstart repositories.
  3. On the RPMs tab, navigate to Red Hat Enterprise Linux ServerRed Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Server (RPMs) and select the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Server RPMs x86_64 6Server repository.
  4. On the RPMs tab, navigate to Red Hat Enterprise Linux ServerRed Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Server - Satellite Tools (RPMs) and select the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Server - Satellite Tools RPMs x86_64 repository.
