Posted on 2008-11-15

I am trying to set up a redhat satellite server at home.

The installation went pretty well until it started asking me the location of the satellite cert.

* Activating Satellite.
Where is your satellite certificate file?

Do i have to create a Cert or do i have to ask Redhat for a cert?

I do have login access to redhat network.

Please, guide me.

    Accepted Solution

    For the RHEL Satellite Server and it's license, you have to purchase one from RedHat or your RedHat Business vendor. List price for Satellite server is $13,500 (USD) annually.



    The RHEL Satellite Server is only for RedHat Enterprise OS servers. If you are wanting just to provision Fedora and/or CentOS servers, then I recommend taking a look at RedHat's Open Source Satellite Server project formally called 'Spacewalk'.
