Description Mike McCune 2013-10-29 12:28:35 EDT

The docs state that yum-utils is a pre-req for Satellite 6 but you can't install it without being registered. 

It is confusing as a user because if they see:

"Oh, yum-utils is a pre-req, let me install it first"

it will fail because the system most likely isn't registered with subscription-manager like outlined in the following steps.  

We should order it such that:

1) Verify the availability of Satellite channels with the following command as the root user:

2) Subscribe to the pool using the following command:

 # subscription-manager subscribe --pool=[pool id]

3) Install yum-utils if not already installed:

 # yum install yum-utils

4) Disable all existing repositories:

 # yum-config-manager --disable "*"
