New to RH Satellite server and Kickstart


I'm pretty new to RHN Satellite server and Kickstart and have a couple
of questions.

We have the Satellite server setup with the needed channels and a
kickstart profile ready for those channels.
Bare Metall installation is running ok ending with a installed system
with no hostname (registered as "unknown" in the satellite server) and
ip from DHCP.

We wonder now:

- How does the server get his Hostname?
- How do we configure the Networks (there are severals including some

What's best practice?

- cloning a template kickstart profile for each server and adding the
- create pre/post scripts who ask for the information during install?
  as we like this idea
  - is there some documentation/examples/helper scripts to get a this
nicely done?
- using config channels and also some kind of scripts to get hostname
and ip?


- is cobbler supporting/integrating with the satellite server

- or is there another way of doing this nicely


We need to install and configure rhel4 and 5 systems.
There is no cmdb available who has the config stored.
