Chapter 8. Installing Red Hat Update Infrastructure

Once you have completed the prerequisites, you can install RHUI on your system. You can install RHUI using repositories and a network connection to resolve dependencies.

8.1. Installing Red Hat Update Infrastructure using repositories

Perform the following steps to install Red Hat Update Infrastructure (RHUI) on your system using repositories.



  1. Navigate to the RHUA node and install the rhui-installer package.

    # dnf install rhui-installer
  2. Run the installer and specify the arguments based on your use case.

    Note that the following arguments are mandatory:

    • --remote-fs-server: The remote mountpoint for the shared file system.
    • --cds-lb-hostname: The name of the load balancer that clients use to access the CDS. You must specify the name as a fully qualified domain name (FQDN).
    • --rhua-hostname: The hostname of the RHUA node. You must specify the name as a fully qualified domain name (FQDN).


      The rhui-installer sets the initial RHUI login password by default and stores it in the /etc/rhui/rhui-subscription-sync.conf file.

      If you wish to set your own password, you can override the initial password with the --rhui-manager-password argument.

      # rhui-installer --remote-fs-server <nfs_server>:/ --rhua-hostname <public-hostname-of-your-rhua> --cds-lb-hostname <public-hostname-of-your-cds-or-lb>


  • On the RHUA node, verify if you can access the RHUI Terminal User Interface (TUI).

    # rhui-manager
