Overview

Learn how to install Red Hat Satellite 6

Red Hat Satellite 6 Administration is a lab-based course that explores the concepts and methods necessary for successful large-scale management of Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems. Course participants will learn how to install Red Hat Satellite 6 on a server and populate it with software packages.

This course is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and Red Hat Satellite server 6. It also includes the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Deployment and Systems Management (EX403) exam based on Red Hat Satellite 6.

Students will use Red Hat Satellite to manage the software development life cycle of a subscribed host and its configuration, and learn how to provision hosts integrated with software and Puppet configuration management upon deployment.

Course content summary

  • Install Red Hat Satellite 6.
  • Red Hat Network organizations, locations, users and roles.
  • Manage software with Red Hat Satellite environments and content views.
  • Create custom RPM packages.
  • Use Red Hat Satellite to configure hosts with Puppet.
  • Provision hosts with integrated software and configuration management.
  • Implement Metal-as-a-Service (MaaS) with Satellite discovery and provisioning of unprovisioned hosts.

Impact on the organization

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to more efficiently design, configure, test, and deploy computer systems within an organization. Doing so will reduce unexpected downtime of systems and facilitate more efficient deployment of new systems, applications and features.

Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, but each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual results or benefits may vary.

Impact on the individual

As a result of attending this course, students should be able to leverage the software development life-cycle process to plan, create, test, and provision host systems within an organization.

Students should be able to demonstrate the following skills:

  • Installation of Red Hat Satellite 6
  • Software life-cycle management of software used to provision and maintain configured hosts within a controlled production environment

Course Outline

Delegates will learn how to install a Red Hat Satellite 6 server and populate it with software packages. They will use Red Hat Satellite to manage the software development life cycle of a subscribed host and its configuration.

Red Hat Satellite provides an easy-to-use, advanced life-cycle management solution for Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems and customers. This delivers a key value add for those customers, and is often the first additional non-RHEL product sold into new customer accounts. Because of this, Satellite is a product with tens of millions of dollars of revenue and its adoption is strategically important to Red Hat. Satellite 6 is also a big step toward consolidation of Red Hat's Red Hat Enterprise Linux and cloud computing management solutions.

This course covers Red Hat Satellite 6, the latest major release of Red Hat Satellite, for the first time. This new release is a radical redesign of Satellite with a new architecture and interfaces. Even system administrators familiar with Red Hat Satellite 5 will require training on the updated product.

Most customers of Satellite operate deployments in the hundreds of systems and primarily use the software update management features of Satellite. This course is targeted at this major audience, but also introduces more advanced features such as system configuration management with Puppet in order to enable customers to use these more advanced features as they determine the need to do so.

It is expected that some delegates attending the course will be new to Satellite 6, but many will be existing customers developing proof of concept deployments or preparing for migration of their management systems from Satellite 5 to Satellite 6.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
