Learning about Satellite 6

Jump to solution

Hello,

Like most of you out there I learn by doing. I'll like to learn how to use and administer Sat 6. I plan on taking the course with my learning subscription (once I get my subscription renewed), but would like to have something at home that I can play with.

As I read about Sat 6, it sounds like it is based on Foreman but has several other components... 

from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satellite_(software)

The Foreman Provision and Life Cycle Management of physical and virtual systems
Katello Foreman Plug-in for Subscription and Repository Management
Candlepin Service in Katello to handle subscription management
Pulp Service in Katello to handle repository and content management
Hammer CLI tool providing command line and shell equivalents of most WEB UI functions
REST API RESTful API service for System Administrators and Developers to write custom scripts and third party interface applications
Apache Tomcat Embedded Tomcat server than must be interfaced via specified tools
Puppet A Puppet Master server installed as part of a Red Hat Satellite 6 Master Server or Capsule server
Hiera[10] A Key-Value database that is part of Puppet and helps keep site specific data out of manifests

To gain some experience (i.e. doing), what should I download to give me the closest feel?

Thanks,

Radesh

As you said already, Satellite is based on Foreman/Katello.

All you need to get started is this page:
