Systems Management with Fedora Spacewalk

Spacewalk is a powerful, flexible systems management solution for deploying, managing, monitoring, and redeploying Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (and derivative) servers. Spacewalk allows users to decrease administrative costs and increase the time available for strategic tasks by performing single operations through the web user interface. These single operations can affect some or all of the user’s servers.

In this session, Thomas Cameron of Red Hat will explore the most useful Spacewalk tips and tricks, which were developed by the Red Hat Systems Management subject matter expert team for deploying new systems. He will discuss:

  • Configuration management and configuration macros
  • System groups
  • Custom and cloned channels
  • Activation keys
  • Kickstart
  • Locked channels
  • Deploying third-party or internally developed software
