Comment 1 Clifford Perry 2010-07-14 20:12:38 UTC
Description of problem:
With the release of RHN Proxy 5.4 we plan to add a statement of support for RHN
Proxy, such that if RHN Proxy is installed on a supported RHEL version + arch
combination, and the RHEL OS is installed on a physical or virtualized
environment that Red Hat supports for that OS version, then by default,
Satellite Engineering also supports RHN Proxy in that environment, even if we
have not specifically tested it. 

Historically in the past we would only say 'supported' after doing exhaustive
testing on first Xen (Proxy 5.1/5.2+), then VMware (Proxy 5.3+) and KVM (Proxy
5.3+), now we will include any virtualized environment, such as HyperV &
Virtage. In short any published document from Red Hat for either RHEL 5 or 6
that indicates that Red Hat Support will support RHEL deployed in that
environment is enough for RHN Proxy to also be considered supported as well. 

I would suggest adding a text similar to the following to the requirements
section for Satellite installation"

"RHN Proxy can be installed on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 or 6 OS in any
supported by Red Hat virtualized environment, this includes Xen, KVM & VMware. 
Functional support does not always equate to performance and you may need to
carefully consider your virtualized environment of choice and tuning guide
lines. "
