Satellite-clone

Easily set up a Red Hat Satellite server with restored backup data.

Getting Started

Throughout this documentation, ensure that you understand the following terminology:

  • Source server: Existing Satellite server.
  • Target server: new server, to which Satellite server is being cloned.

Supported Satellite Versions

  • 6.5
  • 6.6
  • 6.7
  • 6.8

What you need:

  • A blank (vanilla install) RHEL 7 server (target server). You will run the setup commands here.
  • A backup from a Satellite server (source server) created with satellite-maintain. This backup can be with or without pulp data, and can be from a RHEL 6 or 7 machine.
  • You will need a Satellite 6 subscription for the cloned machine. With the new Satellite Infrastructure subscription model you should have multiple Satellite subscriptions available.

Setup

On the target server:

  1. git clone this project.

      # git clone https://github.com/RedHatSatellite/satellite-clone.git
  2. Install ansible package. Ansible should be installed from extras channel.

      # subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-extras-rpms
      # yum install -y ansible

Now you can proceed to performing the cloning process. Please check our FAQ section for frequently asked questions.
