service-wait has a timeout of 30 seconds, which is too short for mongodb initialization on slow systems. I have used a timeout of 120 to circumvent the issue in the past, but not sure if this is enough for all cases.
This can be modified easily in /etc/sysconfig/service-wait, but unfortunately it breaks the installation if it isn't known and done before the install and could leave the host in a bad state.
Since this issue was entered in Red Hat Bugzilla, the release flag has been
set to ? to ensure that it is properly evaluated for this release.
I'm facing this issue every time I try to install Satellite. The timeout occurs every time due to mongodb service.
https://github.com/Katello/katello/pull/4472 fixes the problem.
This https://github.com/Katello/katello-installer/pull/89 is more specific to the problem. The previous comment's PR fix is not necessary if the fix comes to the katello-installer.
