FYI, I've just installed Sat 6.8 snap 17 without any issues.

Comment 6 Lukas Pramuk 2020-09-24 16:03:40 UTC
satellite-installer --enable-foreman-plugin-remote-execution-cockpit  is the reproducer

to workaround the issue I had to use --no-enable-foreman-plugin-remote-execution-cockpit

Created redmine issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/30932 from this bug

Comment 12 Bryan Kearney 2020-09-30 08:04:15 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/30932 has been resolved.

Comment 14 Lukas Pramuk 2020-10-07 10:32:08 UTC
To reproduce this issue I had to install Satellite to VM to be able to adjust CPU count.
I reproduced the issue only with 3 or fewer CPUs.

Comment 15 Lukas Pramuk 2020-10-14 12:26:56 UTC

@Satellite 6.8.0 Snap18

by the manual reproducer based on comment#6 and comment#14:

1) Prepare a VM with 1 CPU for Satellite installation

2) Install Satellite and enable cockpit feature

#satellite-installer --enable-foreman-plugin-remote-execution-cockpit

>>> installation finished successfully, the fix helped in situation when there is low CPU performance, I really see difference for setup with 3 or fewer cpus 

However the issue continues to occur, we encountered it twice:

- baremetal machine  24 CPUs, 16 GB RAM
- VM  4 CPUs, 16 GB RAM

So it looks like low RAM is also triggering the issue, recommended minimun is 20 GB so I don't expect this issue to occur in normal situation on supported setup
