Description Rich Jerrido 2013-09-17 08:00:42 EDT
Description of problem:

Step 11 of Section '4.4.3. Configuring Servers for Enhanced Entitlements Reporting, directs the end user to:

"Substitute hostname for the hostname of the Satellite 5 server and password for your SAM administration password. Save your changes"

The version of /etc/splice/checkin.conf provided via spacewalk-splice-tool-0.45-1.el6sam.noarch does not have the 'ssh_key_path' directive populated with the path to the splice user's SSH key. The version listed in the doc (pasted below) does. As such, when running 'spacewalk-splice-checkin', it fails with:

"Exception: neither ssh key path or local dir were defined, aborting"


Expected results:

We'll either need to update the doc to direct the user to populate the 'ssh_key_path' directive or ship it prepopulated with the correct value

Additional info:

****** checkin.conf (from section 4.4.3) ***
[spacewalk]
host=hostname
ssh_key_path=/var/lib/splice/id_rsa-sat
login=swreport

[katello]
hostname=localhost
port=443
proto=https
api_url=/sam
admin_user=admin
admin_pass=password

The intention for this extract is to have it replicated in the checkin.conf file. As per step 2, the SSH file is generated in /var/lib/splice/id_rsa-sat.

However, to make things clearer, we've modified the line following the extract:

Substitute hostname for the hostname of the Satellite 5 server and password for your SAM administration password. Enter the location of the SAM SSH key for the ssh_key_path parameter. Save your changes.

 Edit the following sections:

[spacewalk]
host=hostname
ssh_key_path=/var/lib/splice/id_rsa-sat
login=swreport

[katello]
hostname=localhost
port=443
proto=https
api_url=/sam
admin_user=admin
admin_pass=password

Substitute hostname for the hostname of the Satellite 5 server and password for your SAM administration password. Enter the location of the SAM SSH key for the ssh_key_path parameter. Save your changes.
