Section Number and Name:
2.3.2. Upgrading a Disconnected Satellite Server
Describe the issue:
We need to improve this step:
8. Obtain the latest ISO file, mount it, and install the packages following the procedures in the Downloading and Installing from a Disconnected Network section of the Red Hat Satellite Installation Guide.
Suggestions for improvement:
The KBase link provided below contains the detailed steps and is tested to update a disconnected Satellite 6.3 using the contents synced by the Satellite; example z-stream updates ( 6.3.1 and so on). We don't provide an updated ISO image for z-stream or incremental versions but the disconnected Satellite needs to be upgraded too just like any other connected Satellites.
How to update a disconnected Satellite 6.3 server?
This is a way to keep a disconnected Satellite updated as self-registered Sat is no longer supported.
