Using pulp client in Satellite 6.0 from command line

In order to use pulp client we need to install it and configure it:

# yum install -y pulp-admin-client
# mkdir ~/.pulp/
# vi ~/.pulp/admin.conf
[server]
verify_ssl = false
host = <FQDN Satellite 6 server>

Then we need our pulp admin password:

# grep -i ^default_password /etc/pulp/server.conf 
default_password: <string>

And that’s it, we’re ready to use pulp client using admin user:

# pulp-admin login -u admin
Enter password:
