Learn how to install Red Hat Satellite 6

Red Hat Satellite 6 Administration (RH403) is a lab-based course that explores the concepts and methods necessary for successful large-scale management of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® systems. Course participants will learn how to install Red Hat Satellite 6 on a server and populate it with software packages.

This course is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and Red Hat Satellite 6.

Students will use Red Hat Satellite to manage the software development life cycle of a subscribed host and its configuration, and learn how to provision hosts integrated with software and Puppet configuration management upon deployment..

Prerequisites

Course content summary

  • Install Red Hat Satellite 6.
  • Red Hat Network organizations, locations, users and roles.
  • Manage software with Red Hat Satellite environments and content views.
  • Create custom RPM packages.
  • Use Red Hat Satellite to configure hosts with Puppet.
  • Provision hosts with integrated software and configuration management.
  • Implement Metal-as-a-Service (MaaS) with Satellite discovery and provisioning of unprovisioned hosts.

Impact on the organization

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to more efficiently design, configure, test, and deploy computer systems within an organization. Doing so will reduce unexpected downtime of systems and facilitate more efficient deployment of new systems, applications and features.
