Description Rich Jerrido 2014-08-03 17:44:19 UTC
Description of problem:

In section 2.3.3 of the Installation Guide it is stated:

" Red Hat supports Red Hat Satellite installations on a External Database using one of the following:

    PostgreSQL 8.4 or greater

This statement is ambiguous and could potentially end up with the user having an unsupported configuration. 

Reading that statement directly, the user may assume that Satellite 5.6+ is supported with Postgres 9.2 or 9.3, which may or may not be a QA'd configuration. 

If Satellite 5.6+ is supported with any of the 9.x versions of Postgres, please update the documentation to state that explicitly. Otherwise, change "Postgres 8.4 or later" to exactly "Postgres 8.4"

Comment 3 Dan Macpherson 2015-10-21 03:08:46 UTC
Closing this bug as the requirements for Satellite 5.7 have changed. Requirements for external database are now PostgreSQL 9.2, which is in the Installation Guide:
