How to prevent downstream or push of updates from RHN Satellite to client system ?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • How to prevent downstream updates using satellite or RHN ?

  • Our servers are connected to a local satellite instance. If possible we'd like to prevent downstream updates or changes to our server caused by mistakes in the satellite console.

  • For example we'd like to block all 'push' updates (Satellite->Server) but still keep the host registered in satellite. 'yum update' and similar 'pull' tasks must still function.
