Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1307117
getting started guide should warn about yum repos that may be enabled outside of subscription-manager scope
Last modified: 2016-05-16 00:00:30 EDT
Section Number and Name:
Chapter 2 step 3
subscription-manager repos --disable="*"
Describe the issue:
In most situations this is good, however it's possible that customers have additional yum repos enabled. And outside of /etc/yum.repos.d/redhat.repo the command above doesn't cover. Because any additional repos outside of redhat.repo/subscription-manager scope could cause unknown conflicts we should make a note to watch.
Suggestions for improvement:
Add an additional check after step 3
[root@aepmaster001 yum.repos.d]# yum repolist
Loaded plugins: langpacks, product-id, subscription-manager
If it is not 0 then you have other yum repos outside of subscription-manager's scope and these could cause unknown conflicts, recommend that they be disabled before proceeding or recommend that the admin validate that they do not conflict with the redhat.repo provided repositories.
Also after step 3 after yum repolist it would probably be good to train customers to do a check with repoclosure that's actually how they would know whether any additional yum repos that they may want impact this environment
As you can see we have dep issues with only our supplied repos, which sort of also tells me we must be missing this step in QA
The note to remind readers about external repos can be verified here .
Moving this to CLOSED-->CURRENTRELEASE.
