download PDF
Follow this procedure to make a custom errata alert:
  1. On the top navigation bar, click on Errata then click Manage Errata on the left navigation bar. From the Errata Management page, click on create new erratum.
  2. Enter an intuitive label for the erratum in the Advisory field, ideally following a naming convention adopted by your organization. Note that this label cannot begin with the letters "RH" (capitalized or not) to prevent confusion between custom errata and those issued by Red Hat .
  3. Then, complete all remaining required fields and click the Create Errata button. View standard Red Hat Errata Alerts for examples of properly completed fields.
RHN Satellite Server administrators may also create errata by cloning an existing one. This cloning preserves package associations and simplifies issuing errata. Refer to Section 5.5, “Cloning Errata” for instructions.
To edit an existing errata alert's details, click its advisory in the Errata Management page, make the changes in the appropriate fields of the Details tab, and click the Update Errata button. Click on the Channels tab to alter the errata's channel association. Click on the Packages tab to view and modify its packages.
To delete errata, select their checkboxes in the Errata Management page, click the Delete Errata button, and confirm the action. Note that deleting published errata may take a few minutes.


To receive an email when errata alerts are issued for your systems, go to Your RHN => Your Preferences in the RHN Management Website and select Receive email notifications. This is a useful setting for administrators of subscribed systems in your organization.
