Many people without a management system with yum, and overlay they can not
without. But there is one problem, and that is the commercial software
provided by external suppliers. You have to manage licenses and
install this software on the computers in the company alone. Here's
the idea of extensions Red Hat Network (or Red Hat Customer Portal)
about the function - online shop with a dedicated software for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. (Initially, I wrote about it in Red Hat Groups).
-Anyone can easily become a partner of Red Hat and place own software,
get money when other users download it.
-A preliminary verification software by the Red Hat. Is it safe for RHEL.
-Determine whether the business license or the host.
-The opinions and assessments of available software.
-Ability to print information about all licenses and their use in company /
-Many options to pay for the selected software.
-Ability to print the invoice / receipt
Example of how to look like the purchase of such software:
Step 1 We find/select the software that we need.
Step 2 Select the quantity (in this example - per host license), optional
architecture and version of RHEL .*
Step 3 Choose your payment method and select options (eg print / request an
Step 4 Go to the list of purchased software and choosing our newly
Step 5 Select add to the systems
Step 6 Select the computers on which you want to install it. We can choose
how many licenses the quantity purchased.
Step 7 Select the button "Automatically install on computers" and
confirm the selected hosts.
Step 8 That's it! After synchronizing with RHN, computers will get One
of our newly purchased software.
This shop would be only for commercial soft. For closed
but free soft, you can simply do a procedure to add this soft to
supplementary, or create a supplementary channel-3rdpart or
supplementary-plus (the name is not important here).
*) - The assumption RHN version and adapts itself to the chosen
architecture of the system and install it right. But I guess that may not
always be possible so you can place an optional feature such as only buying
for EL7 x86_64 version.
Not all functions must be implemented immediately. We know that project
would be develop.
I have ideas for other parts and aspects of this project.
If you are interest, I post it here as well.
