Description Clay Murphy 2003-07-29 20:15:51 EDT
Description of problem:
While working feature 98103 to enhance Satellite installation docs to enable
user installs, Todd W. noticed many inaccuracies and redundant information in
the Proxy Installation Guide. This bug seeks to track those changes, namely:

* Removal of appendices A, C, F and G
* Incorporation of Troubleshooting appendix into legitimate chapter to parallel
the revised Satellite Installation Guide
* Replacement of Proxy rhn.conf example with new one provided by Todd
* Inclusion of Best Practices regarding tiered proxies, horizontal proxies, and
proxy/sat combos
* Revision of Example Topologies to match new recommendations
* Update of Hardware Requirements
* Removal of RPM lists as unnecessary

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Here is a cross reference to the Satellite docs bug:
Comment 2 Clay Murphy 2003-08-11 20:11:39 EDT
I've made the following changes:

Proxy Installation Guide

    * Revised the Example Topologies chapter to reflect our move away from
installation of individual Proxy components
    * Removed several appendices at Todd's request regarding manual installation
and configuration
    * Revised Requirements and Installation chapters to better match recently
revamped chapter in Satellite Installation Guide
    * Removed RPM list from Software Requirements section
    * Replaced example of rhn.conf
    * Incorporated all relevat troubleshooting steps from the Satellite Guide
into a new Troubleshooting chapter that also retains potentially outdated Q&A
from the old Troubleshooting appendix (Todd: Please review)

I'm now distributing to Todd for his review.

Incorporated Todd's input. The docs are in CVS.
Comment 4 Josef Komenda 2003-08-25 11:29:10 EDT
