Install Katello

Page content

Katello brings the full power of content management alongside the provisioning and configuration capabilities of Foreman. Katello is the upstream community project from which the Red Hat Satellite product is derived after Red Hat Satellite Server 6.

Base komponents

  • Foreman: provisioning on new clients.
  • Pulp: patch and content (package repository) management.
  • Candlepin: subscription and entitlement management.
  • Puppet: configuration management (actual running of modules assigned in Foreman).
  • Katello: unified workflow and WebUI for content (Pulp) and subscriptions (Candlepin).

Hardware Requirements

  • Two Logical CPUs
  • 8 GB of memory (12 GB highly recommended)
  • The filesystem holding /var/lib/pulp needs to be large
