Red Hat Satellite 6 Administration (RH403)


Red Hat Satellite 6 Administration (RH403) is a lab-based course that explores the concepts and methods necessary for successful large-scale management of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® systems. You will learn how to configure Red Hat Satellite 6 on a server and populate it with software packages. You 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 Ansible® configuration management upon deployment. This course is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 and Red Hat Satellite 6.6.


– Verify a Red Hat Satellite 6.6 installation.
– Regulate Red Hat Satellite with organizations, locations, users, and roles.
– Manage software with Red Hat Satellite environments and content views.
– Use Red Hat Satellite to configure hosts with Ansible playbooks and roles.
– Provision hosts with integrated software and configuration management.
– Implement Metal-as-a-Service (MaaS) with Satellite discovery and provisioning of unprovisioned hosts.
