Description of problem:
Using a kickstart with idm_register snippet for RHEL 7 causes the host to hang for about 20 minutes after hitting "Welcome to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0 (Maipo)!
The snippet seems to be doing a lot more than the freeipa_register snippet, which is fulfilling a similar purpose, though the freeipa_register snippet is quite a bit smaller and doesn't break the RHEL 7 install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.0.3 Beta
Always, I had several failures while trying to figure out what was going wrong. Eventually getting rid of the idm_register snippet fixed the problem. Adding freeipa_register did not cause any issues and did what was expected
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Satellite 6 Beta
2. Try to provision a RHEL 7 system using the idm_register snippet to register to an IPA server
System has a very long delay in boot after hitting Welcome to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0 (Maipo)! message in the boot process.
System boots normally.
idm_register snippet does work fine with RHEL 6.5, but so does the freeipa_register snippet.
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.
idm_register looks like something in Katello. I don't know why it exists separately to freeipa_register.
It's separate because customers should see "FreeIPA" as little as possible -- they should see the downstream name.
I'll take a look, freeipa_snippet may be smaller in Satellite because you have the old one. Upstream snippet is the same as idm_register, just with different branding.
It wasn't freezing in 6.0.3, QE tested idm_register on RHEL 7. I'll check, maybe I made a mistake when I applied the branding again.
I am seeing the issue using 6.0.3 beta.
Internals shouldn't be changed for branding, and if it was to be changed then it should have been renamed within Foreman, not duplicated into Katello.
Anyway, leaving untriaged for now until more debugging's done.
@Dominic - I asked Bryan what to do when I solved 1092615, and this is what he said to do. It's not relevant to this BZ anyway, if you want it changed, file another one and I'll fix it.
Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/6799 from this bug
Moving to POST since upstream bug http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/6799 has been closed
Tested with Sat6-GA-snap5
idm_register snippet now has the above fix as per comment11 MR.
Also provisioned a RHEL7 machine and verified, there is no delay in the initial boot process.
This was delivered with Satellite 6.0 which was released on 10 September 2014.
