Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 185251
Docs: Reference Guide content - pkg redirect
Last modified: 2016-07-03 20:54:14 EDT
There should be a brief mention of this in Chapter 2 of the Ref Guide. Most of
the work for this feature should be something the user never sees, so won't
really need much documentation.
Proposed Ref Guide content:
In order to increase the speed of package downloads from RHN Hosted, the
retrieval process chooses a local package repository from which to
download updates. This is done securely, using authentication tokens
issued by RHN Hosted.
Note place, visable on lacrosse:
moving to ON_QA
bperkins will be the QA contact for ISO/package redirect when (if?) it is
QA Contact -> ssalevan
I checked the doc on lacrosse and it now contains the aforementioned passage. I
believe that this fits the description for a brief mention, and since it's
clear, I'm moving this to VERIFIED.
The ISO/Package Redirect feature was dropped from 410. Please remove this
reference from the Documentation.
content removed until 411? 415? one of those two.
correction should have gone up with the last qa push.
This text no longer appears in the Reference Guide on the new QA pushed RHN.
Hence, it is verified.
I'm reopening this so that it will be part of 415.
This still isn't in the product, and the release time frame is unknown. I'm
moving to the rhn505-tirage list for now.

Removing automation notification
Some documentation is tracked right now in KB. Mainly http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-16881.
Documentation of satellite will be changed in upcoming major release.
We could just use the content from the errata as a note in the Reference Guide showing the support for CDNs.
Let me know if the following is okay:
Red Hat Network Satellite features Content Delivery Network (CDN) support,
which allows you to download content from a CDN source nearest to the client,
resulting in significantly faster download speeds than previously available.
Is that note sufficient or are there further instructions for enabling this feature in Satellite or Proxy? Is it the same process outlined in the kbase entry in Comment 15 which is:
Systems -> System Detail -> Edit These Properties -> Set "Location-Aware Updates" to "Yes"
the same on Satellite Proxy or different?
IMO it is sufficient, and it is same for Proxy and Satellite.
Where in new documentation I can find this note?
It appears that this note is not in the current 5.4 Reference Guide. Therefore, I am slating it for inclusion in the Satellite 5.5 documentation. If there is
any other information relevant to this bug, please include it in the comments to this bug.
Added to content specification for 5.4.1.
The RHN Satellite 4.x and RHN Proxy 4.x products have reached their end of
life. Please see:
Satellite 4 EOL Errata
RHN Proxy 4 EOL Errata
This bugzilla was reported for an unspecified version of the product, but was created prior to the release of 5.x - as such we assume this bug was reported for the 4.x version of the product - which is no longer supported.

We are closing this bugzilla out. If you feel this bug report should be
reviewed again since it is valid for a currently supported product version,
then please feel free to re-open this bug report.
