Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1309979
Include RHEL 5.7 as a supported client in Satellite 6.1 documentation.
Last modified: 2017-09-17 23:34:50 EDT
Document URL: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Satellite/6.1/html-single/User_Guide/index.html
Section Number and Name:
14.2. Configuring a Host for Registration
Describe the issue:
The doc says clients are supported 5.8 or later. However, all other doc says that 5.7 is supported. eg: https://access.redhat.com/solutions/1156723
Address the following requirements before proceeding:
Hosts must be using the following Red Hat Enterprise Linux Version:
5.8 or later (5.7 or later on s390x)
6.4 or later
7.0 or later
Also, had discussion regarding the same on sysmgmt IRC channel and came to know that the RHEL 5.7 clients are supported.
The reason behind it has not been included is, the packages we ship with 5.7 are broken and not compatible with satellite 6.1.
Suggestions for improvement:
Can we add the same information to the documentation.
