Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1463746
Satellite 5.8 Installation Guide mentions Beta and wrong rhn-upgrade pkg version
Last modified: 2017-06-27 11:45:30 EDT
Description of problem:
From customer comment on the public Satellite 5.8 FAQ https://access.redhat.com/articles/3073161#comment-1188251:
"The installation guide still has references to '5.8 beta'. Is there a final version to be published?
The chapter 9 section 9.2.2 instruction reference RPMs to be installed depending on whether the system is RHEL 5 or RHEL 6.
Neither of these exist in the ISO."
Several things to be fixed here:
1) "Beta" needs to be removed now that Satellite 5.8 is GA.
2) the correct rhn-upgrade package is rhn-upgrade-184.108.40.206-1.el6sat.noarch
3) The rhn-upgrade package does not reside in the Satellite installer ISO but rather the Satellite Channel (or can also be downloaded from Customer Portal Downloads) - for example, from 5.7 install guide https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Satellite/5.7/html-single/Installation_Guide/index.html -
"Obtain Red Hat Satellite Upgrade Package (rhn-upgrade)
Ensure the Satellite is registered to the Red Hat Satellite Channel.
Install the rhn-upgrade package with the following command:
# yum install rhn-upgrade
This package installs scripts and a comprehensive set of instructions for a Red Hat Satellite upgrade within the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/satellite-upgrade directory. "
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. visit Instalation Guide https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_satellite/5.8/html-single/installation_guide/ and grep for "Beta" and "rhn-upgrade"
stuff in several places like:
"** Subscriptions: Subscription providing 'Red Hat Satellite Beta' already attached."
"Click Red Hat Satellite Beta. "
"# yum install /media/cdrom/rhn-upgrade-220.127.116.11-1.el6sat.noarch.rpm"
"# yum install /media/cdrom/rhn-upgrade-18.104.22.168-1.el5sat.noarch.rpm"
no mentions of Beta, correct upgrade instructions and rhn-upgrade version
(updated Bug Description in-place)
This bug is actually more non-trivial since the upgrade steps are actually incorrect with respect to obtaining the rhn-upgrade package since it's not in the ISO. Marking as urgent.
Looks good to me; moving to VERIFIED.
