new job template to update puppet and katello agent smercurio: review+

Description Giridhar 2017-11-27 06:12:45 UTC
Description of problem:

 Need to automate the manual steps required to upgrade the client.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Satellite 6.3.0
Puppet: 4.10.7

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.In order to upgrade the puppet client in satellite 6.3.0 below steps needs to be performed manually

2. Move the ssl directory
# mv /var/lib/puppet/ssl /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/ssl
3. Edit the /etc/puppetlabs/puppet.conf and set the master entries manually

# vi /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf

Actual results: The above steps need to be performed manually

Expected results:The above steps should be automated 

Additional info:

Either the package needs to be modified in such a way that a script is included to automate the manual steps or a package that automates the above steps and this should be installed as dependency to puppet-agent.

Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/22400 from this bug

This reminds me of rejected RFE, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1511505

So simply you can create your own script to be executed on remote hosts to migrate them on puppet4:
subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-satellite-tools-6.3-puppet4-rpms
yum -y upgrade
cp -fp /etc/puppet/puppet.conf.rpmsave /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf
cp -rfp /var/lib/puppet/ssl /etc/puppetlabs/puppet
sed -i 's|vardir\s*=.*|vardir = /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/cache|' /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf
sed -i 's|logdir\s*=.*|logdir = /var/log/puppetlabs/puppet|' /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf
sed -i 's|rundir\s*=.*|rundir = /var/run/puppetlabs|' /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf
sed -i 's|ssldir\s*=.*|ssldir = /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/ssl|' /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf
service puppet restart

new job template to update puppet and katello agent

I think that just adding a new template like this will be a good solution to this and make migrations easier.  It does both puppet 3 to 4 and katello at once but they can easily be extended to do things like update puppet only if enable-puppet4 is true, etc if needed.

Comment 9 Steven Mercurio 2018-06-24 21:42:51 UTC
I added a quick job template I created to handle my puppet/katello updates.  This is something that should be safe to have run on all hosts once a day until all the migrations were completed.

Thank you for your interest in Satellite 6. We have evaluated this request, and while we recognize that it is a valid request, we do not expect this to be implemented in the product in the foreseeable future. This is due to other priorities for the product, and not a reflection on the request itself. We are therefore closing this out as WONTFIX. If you have any concerns about this, please do not reopen. Instead, feel free to contact Red Hat Technical Support. Thank you.
