proxy 5.2 installation guide gives incorrect OS requirements
Last modified: 2014-10-19 18:56:46 EDT
Description of problem:
installation guide is outdated
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/satellite/Red_Hat_Network_Satellite-5.2.0/html/Proxy_Installation_Guide/ch-requirements.html#s1-software-requirements
2. wonder why RHN satellite 5.2 can go on RHEL5 but proxy cannot
may be addressed in http://documentation-stage.bne.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Network_Proxy/5.3.0/html/Installation_Guide/ch-requirements.html
This needs to be fixed eventually and can't rely on a follow-on release. Satellite and Proxy 5.2 will be supported for a good long while. Unless, of course, folks get Proxy 5.3 docs with a Proxy 5.2 installation after 5.3 is released. Is that the case?
Rewritten to the following:
"Base operating system — RHN Proxy Server is supported with Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3 Update 5, Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The operating system can be installed from disc, local ISO image, kickstart, or any of the methods supported by Red Hat."
If this is correct, I will build this and push it to the redhat.com/docs website.
Verified. Checked on:
text now reads:
Base operating system — RHN Proxy Server is supported with Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The operating system can be installed from disc, local ISO image, kickstart, or any of the methods supported by Red Hat.
Release Pending. Checked on rlx-3-10.rhndev.redhat.com with:
