How to install spacewalk 2.9 on CentOS 7

Spacewalk is an open source Linux systems management solution.

Spacewalk's capabilities include:
- Inventory your systems (hardware and software information)
- Install and update software on your systems
- Collect and distribute your custom software packages into manageable groups
- Provision (kickstart) your systems
- Manage and deploy configuration files to your systems
- Provision virtual guests
- Start/stop/configure virtual guests
- Distribute content across multiple geographical sites in an efficient manner


- Outbound open ports 80, 443
- Inbound open ports 80, 443, 5222 (only if you want to push actions to client machines) and 5269 (only for push actions to a Spacewalk Proxy), 69 udp if you want to use tftp
- Storage for database: 250 KiB per client system + 500 KiB per channel + 230 KiB per package in channel (i.e. 1.1GiB for channel with 5000 packages)
- Storage for packages (default /var/satellite): Depends on what you're storing; Red Hat recommend 6GB per channel for their channels
- 2GB RAM minimum, 4GB recommended
- Make sure your underlying OS is fully up-to-date.
