How can I script rhncfg-manager so that it does not prompt for a password?

  • We use the rhncfg-manager list-channels command within a script to get a list of all Satellite channels
  • In the [rhncfg-manager] section of ~/.rhncfgrc we did set the user for the connection
  • How can we specify the password the rhncfg-manager is asking for without being prompted for it?


  • Red Hat Network Satellite 5.5 and before
