The process of upgrading Red Hat Satellite 5.6 to 5.7 is fairly simple if you follow the steps properly and have got enough space on the host while upgrading. There are many new features in Satellite 5.7 which includes integration of IDM for User Authentications and a major upgrade to the text editor which make it a hell of a lot easier to edit files PLUS the NEW User interface gives it a new life. 

NOTE: This guide is applicable only to Red Hat Enterprise Linux v6.x and above.

Its a very quick process to update ESXi version to the latest. This procedure is completed via esxcli going through a SSH session to the Server. The update takes around 5-10mins depending on the hardware resources of the server and the failure is minimal. But not to say that the things wont go wrong so please make a BACKUP before you proceed.

It's now possible to integrate FreeIPA/IDM (Red Hat) into vCenter Appliance (vCSA)/ vCenter Server for User authentications. We need to configure IPA server and vCenter Server for LDAP to authenticate users from IDM server. Follow this guide and you will up and running in no time with a fully working vCenter appliance/server with user authenticating from IPA Server. No need for Windows AD anymore :) .
