Section Number and Name: 

2.5.2. Upgrading Satellite Clients

Describe the issue: 

Text says "You must upgrade all clients to the new version of katello-agent so that your clients are compatible with Satellite Server."

It is not practical to do this at the same time. There will always be some time required and large organizations need days or weeks not hours.

Suggestions for improvement: 

Investigate real requirements, update text.

The is the same issue but talks about sat6-tools in general instead of pure katello-agent.
