Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
This bug fix contains a number of modifications to the preupgrade kickstart. Previously, the script did not receive warning to which components needed an upgrade before the kickstart could be implemented, and there was no warning telling the user to use the file as a reference and not to be used directly. These upgrades are implemented in this bug fix.

Description Petr Hracek 2015-08-14 08:47:57 EDT
Description of problem:
Nowadays preupgrade-assistant generates a kickstart with the help of contents. 
Unfortunately on command line is mentioned only a path to kickstart file without information whether kickstart is prepared for RHEL 7 installation directly.

Report from `preupg` should be enhanced so that sections like users, repositories, packages and partitioning has to be properly updated before any RHEL-7 installation.
Also information that kickstart is only a draft and can not or should not be used directly for RHEL-7 installation before any modification.

Also hint for subscription manager should be mentioned in an output.

Kickstart log file should have a reference what to do after a RHEL-7 installation. This is not handled yet.

This bugzila should covered all these issues.

NOTE: Text has to be reviewed by documentation team. Admins and users will modify kickstart file and misunderstanding can cause a lot of problems in future.
