Description edoardo linington 2011-09-03 10:01:35 UTC
Description of problem:

Once a disconnected install has been done, the "rhn_parent" is blanked out and the documentation doesn't indicate what to set it to in order to connect the Satellite to RHN and continue. So the doc related to satellite 5.4 should me updated with this new info. In particular on the below paragraph should be mentioned that the parameter "server.satellite.rhn_parent" in the file "/etc/rhn/rhn.conf" should be set again to "satellite.rhn.redhat.com"   :

Documentation affected to be corrected:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

satellite 5.4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

correct this doc so that is mentioned that you need to enter again the parent parameter satellite.rhn.redhat.com on the rhn.conf file once a disconnected installation has been done:

Comment 1 Clifford Perry 2011-09-06 18:07:13 UTC
FYI - Today you can login to Satellite as a Satellite Administrator and got o the Configuration section and select or de-select disconnected. This will write the correct default value back in. 


Comment 3 Lana Brindley 2011-10-25 21:14:26 UTC
		Once the installation is completed, you will need to add or modify your settings in the <filename>/etc/rhn/rhn.conf</filename> file:
server.satellite.http_proxy = &lt;http-proxy-fqdn&gt;
server.satellite.http_proxy_username = &lt;proxy-username&gt;
server.satellite.http_proxy_password = &lt;proxy-password&gt;

		You will also need to update the <filename>/etc/rhn/rhn.conf</filename> file to include the parent parameter <parameter>satellite.rhn.redhat.com</parameter>.
			Alternatively, if you are using the RHN Satellite web interface, toggle the <guilabel>disconnected</guilabel> option in the <guimenu>Configuration</guimenu> section.
