10.4 Working with Configuration Channels

Note

The client system must permit the Spacewalk server to deploy files, the activation key for the system must permit the provisioning add-on entitlement and configuration file deployment, and the provisioning entitlement must be enabled for the system. See Section 6.4, “Enabling Remote Configuration in a Kickstart Profile Using the Spacewalk Web Interface”, Section 6.6, “Enabling Remote Configuration Manually”, and Chapter 3, Creating Activation Keys.

In the same way that a software channel in Spacewalk contains packages for installation on multiple client systems, a configuration channel contains files for configuring client systems. For example, the files might contain configuration information for services, applications, or users.
