Description Benjamin Chardi 2016-07-11 07:33:44 UTC
Description of problem:

We need a confirmation from Red  Hat side that the Satellite HA architecture that we have implemented our Satellite 6.1.9 deployment is compliant with Satellite HA reference architecture and also we need to be sure that it will be compliant in future releases.

Our satellite infra for the moment is composed of  one satellite central  server + 3 capsules with RHEL6 and RHEL7 channels + some custom content (~ 250G on /var/lib/pulp). For the moment we have ~50 clients attached to it but in the next year we will reach more that 30K clients attached.

We are using a F5 load balancer in order to provide an Active-Active HA for the following Capsules service to the clients: puppetmaster, rpm repo (pulp), access to puppet CA and access to tftpboot services. We have written some documentation about the details in how we have do it:


[1] and [2] explains how to do it, but for generating LB ssl certificates we have  used [3] as explained in [2] instead of modifying the satellite installation scripts as described in [1].

So taking into account all this information, we need the confirmation that this Satellite HA architecture is (and will be) fully soported by Red Hat.

We are not doing any kind of HA for satellite server itself
