Description Lukas Zapletal 2015-05-26 15:01:08 UTC
In the provisioning guide, chapter about Capsules (with DHCP and provisioning), suggest to use --capsule-templates by default. This option is turned off by default, it should be always present when --capsule-tftp* are provided.

Comment 1 RHEL Program Management 2015-05-26 15:02:39 UTC
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.

Comment 2 Lukas Zapletal 2015-05-29 08:09:43 UTC
Description for --capsule-templates option: Configure Capsule to redirect provisioned hosts on it to fetch provisioning templates (PXELinux, iPXE, Kickstarts and others).

Comment 3 Lukas Zapletal 2015-05-29 08:10:15 UTC
Chapter: Configuring DNS, DHCP, and TFTP

Comment 6 Lukas Zapletal 2015-06-02 09:34:04 UTC
Actually, it might be better to turn this on by default. This is no longer a doco bug.

Comment 7 Lukas Zapletal 2015-06-02 09:35:13 UTC
TRIAGE NOTES: Trivial change in the installer makes provisioning usability better. Currently provisioning does not work with Capsules templates.

Comment 8 Lukas Zapletal 2015-06-02 09:42:01 UTC

Comment 9 Lukas Zapletal 2015-06-02 09:43:37 UTC
WORKAROUND: Re-run capsule installer with --capsule-templates true or edit /etc/foreman-proxy/setting.d/templates.yml and enable there, make sure the URL is set properly (http not https, valid capsule FQDN and port 8000 not 9090).

Comment 12 Sachin Ghai 2015-06-04 09:22:54 UTC
Verified with sat6.1 GA snap7

on sat6 server,  --capsule-templates is set to true by default.

[root@sat6-qe-rhel66 ~]# katello-installer --help | grep capsule-templates
    --capsule-templates           Enable templates proxying feature (default: true)

on capsule, --templates is set to true by default.

[root@sat6-capsule-rhel66 ~]# capsule-installer --help | grep templates
    --templates                   Enable templates proxying feature (default: true)
