Chapter 8.1 mentions how to start & stop the satellite. This assumes the old behavior of the satellite which used SysVinit scripts.
The satellite now is started & stopped with /usr/sbin/rhn-satellite. While the intent of the blurb is still correct, the commands are not.
Fixed in the latest upcoming (5.3.1) version of the Satellite Installation Guide. All

Fails QA. Although the original issue has been fixed, it is still incomplete. The documentation I see on:
Since the RHN Satellite consists of a multitude of individual components, Red Hat provides a command-line tool that allows you to stop, start, or retrieve status information from the various services in the appropriate order: rhn-satellite. This tool accepts all of the typical commands:
Use rhn-satellite to shut down and bring up the entire RHN Satellite and retrieve status messages from all of its services at once.
However, this is missing reload, enable, and disable.
Added reload, enable, and disable to the commands list:
Moving to MODIFIED. Thanks for pointing out the additional commands.
Verified. Checked on: https://rlx-3-14.rhndev.redhat.com/rhn/help/satellite/en-US/ch-maintenance.jsp#s1-maintenance-rhn-satellite
Section 8.4 on DB Control is still referencing "service rhn-database" as well.
Release Pending. Checked on rlx-3-10.rhndev.redhat.com with:
