Description Peter Ondrejka 2017-07-13 07:58:27 EDT
Description of problem:

Calling capsule-certs-generate with --certs-tar value enclosed in quote marks (just like instructed in documetation -- https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_satellite/6.2/html-single/installation_guide/#installing_capsule_server) results in error:

# capsule-certs-generate --node-fqdn "mycapsule.example.com" --certs-tar "~/mycapsule.cexample.com-certs.tar"
Parameter certs-tar invalid: ~/mycapsule.cexample.com-certs.tar is not one of regexes matching /^(([a-zA-Z]:[\\\/Error during configuration, exiting

Supplying the value without quotes results in successful certs creation.

Peter, is this a regression from 6.2?
Comment 3 Eric Helms 2017-07-27 15:25:57 EDT
This sounds like a documentation bug if we could flag it as such to update the docs to exclude the quotes.
Comment 4 Ivan Necas 2017-08-08 04:47:39 EDT
Moving to `Documentation`, as `ls "~/.ssh"` doesn't work for ~ extrapolation, we should not expect the installer doing more logic around that. We should not instruct people to use invalid way of passing paths to CLI tools.

Assigning to Charles for review.

Hey, I don't remember this happening in 6.2, though I might be wrong. I'm ok with passing this to docs, though the displayed message could be improved.
