Description jcastran 2017-08-04 15:57:48 EDT
Description of problem:
When installing RHEL 7.3 or lower and the optional repository is available, the new grub2-tools-efi package becomes available. It requires grub2-tools (grub2-tools does not require grub2-tools-efi)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 7.3 and lower
Fully sync'd (7Server or 7.4 releasever) optional repository

How reproducible:
Everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Host optional repo or repo with only grub2-tools-efi-2.02-0.64.el7.x86_64.rpm
2. Have RHEL 7.3 (or lower) install with the optional repo enabled 
     *Kickstart
     repo --name=grub2-tools-efi-repo --baseurl=file:///tmp/grub2-tools-efi-repo/
3. Start installation

Actual results:
Install stops at:
   grub2-tools-efi.02-0.64.el7.x86_64 requires grub2-common = 1:2.02-0.64.el7

Expected results:
Install does not try to obsolete grub2-tools with grub2-tools-efi

Additional info:
We have tested removing the defining "Obsoletes" from the packages and confirmed that this will resolve this issue.
