Generating a new Satellite Certificate

Red Hat Customer Portal - self-service Satellite Certificate generation tool

  • Satellite customers can use the self-service Satellite Certificate generation tool in the Customer Portal by logging in as an Organizational Administrator user, navigating to Subscriptions → Subscription Management → Subscription Management Applications → Satellite tab, and choosing or creating a Satellite subscription management application. A walkthrough on how to generate a Satellite 5 certificate or Satellite 6 manifest can be found in this article.
  • SIDE NOTE: Aside from generating the certificate, Satellite 5.x servers running in connected mode need to be registered (rhn_register) and activated (rhn-satellite-activate) against RHN Classic Hosted, not Customer Portal Subscription Management.
