Description Marcel Gazdík 2015-08-26 03:25:08 EDT
Document URL: 

Section Number and Name: 
1.4.5. Required Network Ports
  |- Procedure 1.1
    |- B 

Describe the issue: 
In the section A of the procedure mentioned above, there is information about how to check if the firewall is running or not. But this information is not provided for RHEL 7 FirewallD as this service is different some of the customers can be confused.

Suggestions for improvement: 
Add similar section for the RHEL7 FirewallD

Make sure the firewalld service is started and enabled:
# systemctl start firewalld
# systemctl enable firewalld 

# systemctl start firewalld status
# firewalld.service - firewalld - dynamic firewall daemon
#    Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/firewalld.service; enabled)
#    Active: inactive (dead) since Wed 2015-08-26 08:58:25 CEST; 23min ago
#  Main PID: 582 (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
#    CGroup: /system.slice/firewalld.service

Commands: 1) start the service
          2) enable the service during boot
          3) example of status when the service is enabled

Hi Marcel,

Thank you for raising this bug.

Instructions on how to set up the firewall on RHEL 7 systems using firewall-cmd are now available in the Satellite 6.2 documentation in locations such as the following -


Work on the Satellite documentation is currently focusing on the 6.2 version, so we do not have any plans to backport this content at current. I will close this bug for now, but please let us know if you have any further concerns.

Kind regards,
