Chapter 7. Promoting SCAP Content to Clients

The following section describes how to promote Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) content to clients registered to Capsule Servers that you configure for load balancing.

Prerequisites

Ensure that you configure the SCAP content. For more information, see Configuring SCAP Content in Administering Red Hat Satellite.

Procedure

  1. In the Satellite web UI, navigate to Configure > Classes and click foreman_scap_client.
  2. Click the Smart Class Parameter tab.
  3. In the pane to the left of the Smart Class Parameter window, click port.
  4. In the Default Behavior area, select the Override check box.
  5. From the Key Type list, select integer.
  6. In the Default Value field, enter 9090.
  7. In the pane to the left of the Smart Class Parameter window, click server.
  8. In the Default Behavior area, select the Override check box.
  9. From the Key Type list, select string.
  10. In the Default Value field, enter the FQDN of your load balancer. For example, loadbalancer.example.com.
  11. In the lower left of the Smart Class Parameter window, click Submit.
  12. Add the puppet module that contains the foreman_scap_client puppet class to a Content View. Publish and promote this Content View to your client’s environment.
  13. If you want to verify the configuration, run the Puppet agent on the client to promote the changes. Do not run the Puppet agent on every client manually because the Puppet agent runs on the clients every 30 minutes.

    # puppet agent -t --noop
  14. On the client, verify that the /etc/foreman_scap_client/config.yaml file contains the following lines:

    # Foreman proxy to which reports should be uploaded
    :server: 'loadbalancer.example.com'
    :port: 9090
