Description Shannon Hughes 2014-07-21 14:48:34 UTC
Description of problem:

I was running through the following instructions:


specifically section 5.4. I missed this part:

" Log in to the Satellite Server CLI as root.
Choose the desired Red Hat Satellite Capsule Server from the list and take note of its id:

# hammer capsule list

I was trying to run hammer on the Capsule vs Satellite. 

Thought I would would be good to more clearly state that hammer commands are to be run on the Satellite Server. Possibly a boldface comment or more clearly stated as a note, 

Note: All of the following hammer commands are run on the Satellite Server, not the Satellite Capsule Server.

Since this issue was entered in Red Hat Bugzilla, the release flag has been
set to ? to ensure that it is properly evaluated for this release.

Hi Shannon,

Thanks for the feedback. I put in "step 1" to make it clear that it was on the Sat Server instead of the Capsule but if that is being skipped and a more visible statement needs to be made, I might add a "note" or "important" to that section to make it clearer. 

Does that work for you?

This was delivered with Satellite 6.0 which was released on 10 September 2014.
