4.8. Configuring Red Hat Satellite Errata Management for a Virtual Machine

In the Administration Portal, you can configure a virtual machine to display the available errata. The virtual machine needs to be associated with a Red Hat Satellite server to show available errata.

Red Hat Virtualization 4.3 supports errata management with Red Hat Satellite 6.5.



Virtual machines are identified in the Satellite server by their FQDN. This ensures that an external content host ID does not need to be maintained in Red Hat Virtualization.


To configure Red Hat Satellite errata management:

  1. Click ComputeVirtual Machines and select a virtual machine.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. Click the Foreman/Satellite tab.
  4. Select the required Satellite server from the Provider drop-down list.
  5. Click OK.
