Section Number and Name:
5.1. To Register a Satellite to Itself
Describe the issue & Suggestions for improvement:
This no longer matches the interface used for subscription management.
Currently, the satellite server instance must be opened by clicking on the hostname. Then the subscriptions can be selected, and added to the host using the "Attach a subscription" button.
The name is no longer "Red Hat Software Collections RPMs" but "RH Common RPMs"
Including the categories where those repositories are located would be a nice touch, since both Satellite and RHN-Tools channels used to be a children, and are located elsewhere in the display now.
The command given is "rpm -Uvh https://localhost/pub/katello-ca-consumer-latest.noarch.rpm"
Obtaining the file over HTTPS generates an error for most customers, since they will not have a signed key. The purpose of this procedure is to do a local install, and we want the key from the local system, so specifying the local path to the file would be a significant improvement:
rpm -Uvh /var/www/html/pub/katello-ca-consumer-latest.noarch.rpm
The option "--auto" is no longer correct. I believe you now intend to use the option "--auto-attach"
Minor issue with Step "11". It would be beneficial to declare the minimum necessary channels, even though that information exists up in step 4.6 for a different purpose.
Thank you Maresh,
I did most of the requested changes in commit:
I got rid of the --auto-attach thing, as the pools to be attached are specified in next steps.
I'm not sure about 'The name is no longer "Red Hat Software Collections RPMs" but "RH Common RPMs', Rich can you please comment on this?
Thanks a lot.

'Red Hat Software Collections RPMs' is the correct repo.
