10.3 About Spacewalk

Spacewalk is an open source solution for systems management that allows you to:

  • Create inventories of hardware and software.

  • Provision, configure, monitor, and control systems.

  • Create customized software packages.

  • Manage software installations and updates.

If you have an Oracle Linux Basic or Premier Support subscription, you can access a fully supported build of Spacewalk 2.2 for managing Oracle Linux systems. This implementation of Spacewalk is provided as a transitional solution that you can use while you are planning a migration to Oracle Enterprise Manager from management tools such as Red Hat Satellite Server.
