Red Hat Satellite 6.13

Red Hat Satellite 6.13 is now available! List of fixes, errata details and official blog:

Of note, if you are running Satellite in a lab environment and run it with a smaller than expected CPU and memory combination, you may encounter errors on upgrade such as:

Check if system requirements match current tuning profile:            [FAIL]
ERROR: The installer is configured to use the default tuning profile and does not meet the requirements.
The number of CPU cores for the system is 2 but the currently configured tuning profile requires 4.
The system memory is 15 GB but the currently configured tuning profile requires 20 GB.

If you attempt to skip past this with the --whitelist check-tuning-requirements argument, you may get an error such as:

# satellite-maintain upgrade run --target-version 6.13 --whitelist check-tuning-requirements
