Description Andrew Dahms 2015-05-26 09:13:45 UTC
The procedure outlining how to perform offline installations of RHEV must be reviewed for accuracy and updated based on the following article -

https://access.redhat.com/solutions/1413763

Comment 1 Andrew Dahms 2015-05-26 09:15:37 UTC
Assigning to Lucy for review.

Comment 3 Andrew Dahms 2015-06-24 05:09:47 UTC
Assigning trichard as the QA contact.

Comment 4 Lucy Bopf 2015-09-08 06:32:29 UTC
After some testing and evaluation, the script and method mentioned in https://access.redhat.com/solutions/1413763 are not candidates for our documentation for several reasons:

1. The script and method use RHN to register the system and enable repos. Our documentation uses RHSM.
2. The script automated only a few steps in the not-overly-long procedure we already had.
3. The script and method don't cover updates to the local repository.

Instead, I have updated the existing procedure in our documentation, and added an additional, short procedure to cover updating the repository.

For 3.5 (both in Installation Guide Appendix):
Configuring a Local Repository for Offline Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager Installation [9420-770039]
Updating the Local Repository for an Offline Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager Installation [44662-770038]

For 3.6
Configuring a Local Repository for Offline Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager Installation [9420-770040] (in Installation Guide)
Updating the Local Repository for an Offline Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager Installation [44662] (somewhere in Upgrade Guide) (Must be updated to point to 3.6 upgrade topic when that content becomes available)
