If you're not, please head to the "Satellite project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs will be migrated starting at the end of May. If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords".

Internal Links: 1269208

Description Roman Plevka 2017-08-08 09:28:57 UTC
Description of problem:
docker log reading feature does not respect the fact that I use external docker resource and keeps trying to connect to /var/run/docker.sock of the satellite box instead of using TCP/TLS for reaching the external docker interface.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
satellite 6.3.0-10

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have an external host running docker, configured to accept tcp/tls connections
2. add this host as a docker compute resource on satellite
3. create a container via satellite interface
4. try to use satellite to read the container logs
