The Foreman installer has an option to specify the remote database host where postgres (or others) live:
we need this to also be used when configuring the database the Katello engine uses as well as Candlepin.
This will allow us to support a database server that isn't the same machine as the Satellite 6 instance.

Hi Mike, just to clarify/follow up from IRC, is this BZ only for external Postgres DB - or Managed Postgres and External Oracle as well (i.e. all options currently offered as of Satellite 5.6 )?
There's been questions from support about customers who're on Satellite 5.6 with external dbs (Postgres or Oracle) about how to transition while keeping their db setup.

Please also do add gutterball to the list of DB's that need to have support to be on external DB's.
