A significant amount of customers already have Puppet in their environment, be it the community version, or Puppet Enterprise (PE).
In the first part of this series, Dan Macpherson discusses what Satellite 6 is, basic topology, an overview of Capsule (provisioning service), how the the discovery service works, and what's involved with Puppet.
In this video, we will overview the basic concepts and primary use cases of Red Hat Satellite that will be discussed and demonstrated in this set of videos.
Satellite 6.2 has additional capabilities that allow it to run arbitrary commands on hosts with an SSH transport. Remote Execution uses the Satellite Capsule so that the Satellite does not require direct access to the client.
For Satellite 6, you need to import a new manifest if you are installing Satellite for the first time, replacing a manifest with expiring or expired subscriptions, or have made changes to your subscription allocations and need Satellite to reflect those changes.
