download PDF
In the Administration Portal, you can configure a virtual machine to display the available errata. The virtual machine needs to be associated with a Red Hat Satellite server to show available errata.
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.6 and onwards supports errata management with Red Hat Satellite 6.1.
The following prerequisites apply:


Virtual machines are identified in the Satellite server by their FQDN. This ensures that an external content host ID does not need to be maintained in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.

Procedure 4.13. Configuring Red Hat Satellite Errata Management


The virtual machine must be registered to the Satellite server as a content host and have the katello-agent package installed.
For more information on how to configure a host registration see Configuring a Host for Registration in the Red Hat Satellite User Guide and for more information on how to register a host and install the katello-agent package see Registration in the Red Hat Satellite User Guide
