Red Hat Satellite v6 (Foreman/Katello) Administration
Overview

Foreman and Katello together are the extremely popular enterprise infrastructure management solution. Red Hat Inc. rebrands Foreman and Katello as Red Hat Satellite v6.

Foreman and Katello allow complete lifecycle management of Linux servers from a single management console. The main features include the ability to centrally provision new servers whether bare metal, private cloud/virtualization platforms, or in the public cloud. After the servers are provisioned, Foreman supports centralized configuration management of the servers using Puppet, Ansible, Salt or Chef. Foreman's Katello plugin allows for versioned content repositories to move through defined life cycles such as DEV, QA, and PROD as well as errata management. Finally, when used with official Red Hat Subscriptions allows for complete subscription management.

Although Foreman can provision and manage virtually all Linux distributions, it is especially prevalent in large Red Hat Enterprise Linux environments where is it is deployed as Red Hat Satellite v6.

This 4-day course provides comprehensive hands on coverage all the of the major features starting from best practices in installation and initial configuration, managing subscriptions, products and repositories, content views, lifecycles, activation keys, system registration of existing system, bare metal and virtualization provisioning including discovery, provisioning templates, configuration management with puppet, IdM integration, smart proxies/capsule servers, virt-who, and subscription management. Additionally, the course covers the differences between Red Hat's Satellite v6 and the open source upstream Foreman and Katello.

Foreman and Katello are rather complex and students who take this class will feel comfortable deploying, configuring using best practices and managing it day to day.

Prerequisites

An intermediate knowledge of the Linux operating system is required. The equivalent knowledge can be found in the "Linux Fundamentals" and "Enterprise Linux Systems Administration" courses.

Course duration

4 days

Supported Distributions:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7
