Description of problem:
When upgrading a Satellite or an external Capsule from 6.1 to 6.2, there are several parameters that are not getting migrated from the old configuration  to the new configuration .
This includes parameters such as:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.2 SNAP 14
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Satellite 6.1 and Capsule 6.1
2. Ensure that the configuration has several foreman proxy services configured with non-default values (e.g. dns, dhcp, realm, bnc...)
3. Upgrade the Satellite to 6.2
4. Upgrade the Capsule to 6.2
Upgrade may fail; however, observe that the answers file generated for the upgraded environment does not indicated that the previous configuration was migrated.
See  for the new files.
The answers from should be migrated from  to  and used as part of the upgrade process.
 /etc/katello-installer/answers.katello-installer.yaml (internal capsule)
/etc/capsule-installer/answers.capsule-installer.yaml (external capsule)
 /etc/foreman-installer/scenarios.d/satellite-answers.yaml (internal capsule)
/etc/foreman-installer/scenarios.d/capsule-answers.yaml (external capsule)
Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/15350 from this bug
Note: this bug will require both the upstream PR and downstream MR..
As a workaround, if any of the fields noted in the original description are in use on either the Satellite internal capsule or external Capsule, the values can be provided as an input during the upgrade.
E.g. enabling bmc on an external capsule
satellite-installer --scenario capsule --upgrade --bmc true
To view the list of options available prior to upgrade execute:
satellite-installer --scenario satellite --help
satellite-installer --scenario capsule --help

Verified issue with upgrade from sat6.1.9 -> sat6.2 GA snap16 on rhel7:
Issue has been reolved for internal/default capsule. I can see upgrades are now migarating the capsule answers parameters. I can see dns/dhcp/bmc features enabled on default capsule after migration. Earlier they got disabled. I can see all param correctly populated under:
I can see dns/dhcp/bmc features enabled on external capsule after migration and answer file for capsule is correctly populated.
