Minimize Satellite downtime on upgrade - Compatibility between Satellite and previous Capsules

Solution Unverified - Updated -


During the upgrade phase the Satellite server and the Capsules must be upgraded together. When Satellite and Capsules are managed by several teams it requires a synchronization of all these teams to perform the upgrade and minimize the downtime.

During a Satellite upgrade, once the Satellite is up-to-date; the Capsules are not supported to work with the up-to-date Satellite and cannot continue to deliver subscription consumption.

The goal is to ensure that at least :
- subscription consumption (attach new nodes)
- repository content consumption
