Editor's note: Red Hat Satellite's next version will be 6.11. Please see this update, published on March 25, 2022.


Red Hat strives to make the best product decisions possible with input from the community and customers. Previously, Red Hat had announced that changes in the roadmap would deprecate Puppet functionality. Based on feedback, Red Hat has decided to accommodate the community and customers by reversing that decision. 

Red Hat Satellite 7 will ship Puppet ENC support as a plugin. That means that support for Puppet will be available only if it is explicitly enabled in new installation (upgrades to Satellite 7 will preserve existing functionality), whereas, in the past, Satellite provided Puppet support by default. 

There will be no functional change in Satellite and Puppet integration between Satellite 7 and Satellite 6.10. 

In the future, the plugin mentioned above is planned to remain an optional feature. However, Puppet Agent and Puppet Server will no longer ship with Red Hat Satellite. 

6.9 & Older

6.10

7

Satellite functions as an ENC. Puppet Server and Agent are shipped with Satellite. 

Puppet modules content type has been removed as it is currently not supported in the Pulp3 content management system. 

Puppet functionality found in 6.10 will be provided as a plugin. Thus, upgrades from 6.10 will inherit Puppet functionality. New installs of 7 will require an extra step to enable Puppet functionality.

 

Red Hat will continue to evaluate how best to support customers by working with ecosystem partners to meet customer requirements and provide optimal operating system management solutions. Our vision is to help customers build deployment and management workflows using the best tools available.
