Red Hat Network Tour
Learn how Red Hat Network can be used to simplify systems management with Best Practices for Deploying and Managing Linux with Red Hat Network.
Screenshot Tour of Red Hat Network
The following screenshots provide examples of functionality in each of the Red Hat Network modules:
- Kickstart configuration writer
- Existing state provisioning
- Configuration management
- Multi-state rollback
Develop groups of systems for easy administration and maintenance. Maintain several systems at once rather than administering each system individually. Updating an entire group of systems is as quick and easy as updating a single system.
You can assign roles to administrators to give them the least amount of privilege necessary. Also, group your systems according to your needs and then assign permissions to different administrators. This allows your organization to distribute the maintenance of systems to different groups, while upholding security guidelines.
Schedule a certain errata update for a system or group, allowing your organization to take advantage of scheduled downtime for errata maintenance if desired. Or, avoid manual updates completely with Auto Update - setting your servers to automatically pull down the latest errata as soon as it is available.
Kickstart configuration writer
Write Kickstart configuration scripts with our tool, or point to an existing system and have RHN create a script based on that system.
Existing state provisioning
Easily perform on-the-fly provisioning of your system with the simple point and click of a button.
Avoid manually having to perform configuration management to each system. Easily configure text files for individual or groups of systems. Combine with Kickstart actions to enable a complete provisioning action.
Multi-state rollback allows your system to return to a previous state or configuration instantly. No more manual removing of packages, trying to remember preexisting configurations, or using rollback through multiple iterations. Red Hat Network records these states for you and makes the process quick and easy.
Quickly create a monitoring probe that can track system, network, log, or application information.
Quickly deploy many probes to many systems. Probe suites are powerful tools that can save the time spent creating and configuring the same probes across systems.
Instantly see the performance of your systems. Email and pager notifications can be used to alert you when systems reach your warning or critical thresholds.
