[RFE] Add more specific instruction to inform users that Satellite 6 is NOT installable on EUS or z-stream releases of RHEL
Last modified: 2017-08-03 21:28:45 EDT
Document URL: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_satellite/6.2/html-single/installation_guide/#supported_operating_systems
Section Number and Name: section 2.2 and section 3.1.3
Describe the issue:
In section 2.2 we state:
"...Red Hat Satellite Server and Red Hat Satellite Capsule Server are supported only on the latest versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Server or 7 Server that is available when Satellite 6.2 is released. Previous versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux including EUS or z-stream are not supported. "
Suggestions for improvement:
Please add (immediately after the above statement), the following phrase:
"Satellite is only supported on the 6Server and 7Server release versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Other release versions (such as 6.9 or 7.3), if set, must be unset via the subscription-manager command prior to installation of the Satellite Server or Satellite Capsule Server software" .
In section 3.1.3, after step 1 'disable all existing repositories', and perform step 2 'Enable the Red Hat Satellite...' add a step with the following:
Unset the release version if currently set:
subscription-manager release --unset
Assigning to Julie for review.
Julie - this looks like a quick fix and would be a good addition for us to get in. Would you be able to backport this to the '6.2' branch after merging into the 'master' branch?
