Custom Errata enable customers who have their own private channel to issue Errata Alerts for their packages. All Errata management activities will take place in the Errata tab of the RHN website. The instructions here should be used in conjunction with the RHN website chapter of the RHN Management Reference Guide.
In addition to the buttons and pages available to standard RHN Management-level users, RHN Satellite Server and RHN Proxy Server customers also have access to Manage Errata in the left navigation bar. This button opens the Errata Management interface, where all custom Errata management work occurs.
Customers using both RHN Proxy Server and RHN Satellite Server should be managing Errata only on the Satellite, since the Proxies should be receiving updates directly from it. Managing Errata on a Proxy in this combined configuration risks putting your servers out-of-sync.
Clicking an Advisory within the Errata Management list takes you to the Details tab of the Managed Errata Details page. Refer to Section 5.2 Managed Errata Details for a full explanation of this area.
The Published Errata page is shown by default when you click Manage Errata in the left navigation bar. It displays the Errata Alerts your organization has created and disseminated.
To edit an existing published Errata, follow the steps described in Section 5.3 Creating and Editing Errata. To distribute the Errata, click Send Notification on the top-right corner of the Errata Details page. The Errata Alert will be sent to the administrators of all affected systems.
The Unpublished Errata page appears when you click Unpublished below Manage Errata in the left navigation bar. It displays the Errata Alerts your organization has created but not yet disseminated.
To edit an existing unpublished Errata, follow the steps described in Section 5.3 Creating and Editing Errata. To publish the Errata, click Publish Errata on the top-right corner of the Errata Details page. The Errata Alert will be shifted to the Published page awaiting dissemination.
