Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1021069
Doc: Add CDN IP address information to docs
Last modified: 2015-03-17 03:34:36 EDT
As covered in bug 721230, there are some customer issues related to location aware updates. The CDN cycles through different IP addresses, depending onthe geographical location of a system, all resolving to the hostname cdn.redhat.com. Some environments have firewall rules that block downloads.
The list of IP addresses should be in the RHSM docs for reference so that people can set the appropriate firewall rules.

The subscription-manager tool uses outgoing HTTPS requests. In the default configuration it will use HTTPS on port 443 to the subscription servers subscription.rhn.redhat.com and to the content delivery service cdn.redhat.com.
For information about the network addresses that subscription-manager and the subscription-manager yum plug‐in use see https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/414963
To the subscription-manager man page.

1021069: Add reference to network usage info.
Document the default server names and network ports
used in the man page, and include a reference to the
knowledge base article that documents the IP addresses
and netblocks of the servers.
Adrian addressed this in the man page, but there should be either a part in the docs or a kbase with this information, as well. Changing back to assigned.
VERIFIED: The subscription-manager man page addition in comment 2 is present in subscription-manager-1.10.14-4.el7
This is live in the docs here:
