Red Hat Network Satellite Server 6, as well as its upstream project Katello, has been developed to provide software to client hosts, as well as manage their configuration sending SSH remote commands or leveraging on Puppet or Ansible.
The published packages are provided by the means of content views with frozen packages versions.
The obvious requirement to benefit from the provided services is registering client hosts.
