Description Frank Hirtz 2015-12-02 15:33:40 EST
Description of problem:

In the 6.1 Satellite documentation, if one is installing a Satellite with an integrated capsule, port 9090 needs to be available in addition to those listed in the Server install list:


We list 9090 in table 7.1:


...but, it's not obvious that this needs to be in the port list for an integrated capsule installation and can cause installation failures. 

this is used for the foreman-proxy service, as you can see on my 6.1.4 systems both rhel6/7 its needed
[root@satellite1 ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.7 (Santiago)
[root@satellite1 ~]# hostname -f
[root@satellite1 ~]# netstat -tunap | grep 9090
tcp        0      0      *                   LISTEN      16491/ruby          

[root@satellite1 ~]# hostname -f
[root@satellite1 ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.2 (Maipo)
[root@satellite1 ~]# netstat -tunap | grep 9090
tcp        0      0  *               LISTEN      24939/ruby

I'd like to request that the documentation either make the need for the Satellite->Capsule port needing to be also opened in this configuration be made more explicit in the main section, or that 9090 be added to the main list (if that's acceptable).
Comment 1 Stephen Wadeley 2016-01-06 07:25:47 EST

I think we should add it to the table "Ports for Client to Satellite Communication"

We have 9090 in "Ports for Client to Capsule Communication"

It says:
9090 	TCP 	HTTPS 	Sending generated SCAP reports to the proxy in the Capsule for spooling 

I believe it is also used for host discovery and provisioning by the 	discovered node. So that text should be added to the tables.

Thank you
