Description Evgeni Golov 2021-05-19 10:41:29 UTC
Description of problem:
In Satellite up to 6.8, when you synced the RHEL product, it would create the according OS with the title "RedHat 8.1" (or whatever the version is)
Since Satellite 6.9, syncing the same repository results in an OS with the title "RedHat-8.1.0" which breaks essentially any automated deployment workflow that still expects "RedHat 8.1".

This was introduced in https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/30571 / https://github.com/Katello/katello/pull/8936 to fix some validation bug

In my environment, it was sufficient to unset the "description" attribute of the OS, to get the "old" behavior back.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.9.1

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sync RH products with kickstarts

Actual results:
See OS with the title "RedHat-8.1.0"

Expected results:
See OS with the title "RedHat 8.1"

Comment 1 Evgeni Golov 2021-05-27 13:28:06 UTC
One thing that I didn't point out in the original comment: I think calling that OS 8.1.0 is wrong, as it really is 8.1 and we don't really version .z releases in RHEL.

(the 8.1.0 was imported from an exported CV, so it might have different metadata than what's on CDN)
