The installation will occasionally fail on virtual machines. This is due to the extra time which is taken for tomcat to start up and generate keys. The key generation requires entropy which is difficult to get on VMs which are headless.
Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/10654 from this bug
fixed by 48e6321ccf9091fb41dc33d3c73846377f98e2a5
Moving to POST since upstream bug http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/10654 has been closed
Can we get some details on how the entropy was generated, etc., for this fix?
Also, need verification steps, specifically which type of VMs might be more prone to install failure.
No new entropy was generated, only the wait time was increased.
Verification is effectively a no-break install. I have been able to generate the error on kvm running on RHEL6, but I expect it to be very hardware specific. So, a successful install I believe is fair verification.
Verified in Sat 6.1 GA Snap 7
Successfully installed on VM 5 times. There may still be configurations that could block an installation on other VMs, but as long as the user follows the recommended guidelines in Satellite documentation, those should be few and far between.
