Chapter 7. Updating your system

Before you install RHUI, it is a good practice to secure your system by installing all the latest available updates.


  • Ensure that the system is registered to Red Hat.
  • All the relevant repositories are enabled.


  1. Navigate to each of your nodes and apply any available operating system updates.

    For detailed information about updating your system, see the Securing your system.

  2. Reboot the nodes.
  3. Verify that all configuration changes have persisted.


    Make sure the host name of the RHUA is set correctly. If the host name is not set and its value is reported as localhost.localdomain or localhost, you will not be able to proceed.
