Description of problem:
Need to automate the manual steps required to upgrade the client.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.In order to upgrade the puppet client in satellite 6.3.0 below steps needs to be performed manually
2. Move the ssl directory
# mv /var/lib/puppet/ssl /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/ssl
3. Edit the /etc/puppetlabs/puppet.conf and set the master entries manually
# vi /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf
Actual results: The above steps need to be performed manually
Expected results:The above steps should be automated
Either the package needs to be modified in such a way that a script is included to automate the manual steps or a package that automates the above steps and this should be installed as dependency to puppet-agent.
Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/22400 from this bug
see comment https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1547951#c17
This reminds me of rejected RFE, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1511505
So simply you can create your own script to be executed on remote hosts to migrate them on puppet4:
subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-satellite-tools-6.3-puppet4-rpms
yum -y upgrade
cp -fp /etc/puppet/puppet.conf.rpmsave /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf
cp -rfp /var/lib/puppet/ssl /etc/puppetlabs/puppet
sed -i 's|vardir\s*=.*|vardir = /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/cache|' /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf
sed -i 's|logdir\s*=.*|logdir = /var/log/puppetlabs/puppet|' /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf
sed -i 's|rundir\s*=.*|rundir = /var/run/puppetlabs|' /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf
sed -i 's|ssldir\s*=.*|ssldir = /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/ssl|' /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf
service puppet restart

new job template to update puppet and katello agent
I think that just adding a new template like this will be a good solution to this and make migrations easier. It does both puppet 3 to 4 and katello at once but they can easily be extended to do things like update puppet only if enable-puppet4 is true, etc if needed.
I added a quick job template I created to handle my puppet/katello updates. This is something that should be safe to have run on all hosts once a day until all the migrations were completed.
Thank you for your interest in Satellite 6. We have evaluated this request, and while we recognize that it is a valid request, we do not expect this to be implemented in the product in the foreseeable future. This is due to other priorities for the product, and not a reflection on the request itself. We are therefore closing this out as WONTFIX. If you have any concerns about this, please do not reopen.
