When provisioning a RHEL server by using a generic boot iso (other methods might be applicable as well) and a activation key, a new content host and a new (foreman) host are added to Satellite. The activation key contains all the necessary information such as lifecycle environment, host group etc. However, when checking out the newly created host (Hosts > All hosts > [the new host] > Edit), some fields aren't filled in (e.g. Host Group, Lifecycle Environment, Content Source) and have to be manually selected from the dropdowns. This seems odd, because all this information is available inside the activation key, so I expect it to be used for this new host object.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 6.0.8 (and previous, since 6.0)
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new activation key
2. Provision the host using this activation key
3. Do a initial Puppet run so that the Host is created
4. Edit the host to check the blank fields
The following dropdowns are blank:
- Host Group
- Lifecycle Environment
- Content Source
Use the values from the activation key.
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.
this indeed seems wrong, can you provide logs/foreman debug on when the operation happens?
