Description of problem:
If you run katello-backup from cron then it fails with
'sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Put this line to crontab
33 15 * * * root /usr/bin/katello-backup /var/sat-content --online-backup --skip-pulp-content >> /var/log/satellite/backups.log 2>&1
Starting backup: 2018-01-27 15:33:02 +1100
Creating backup folder /var/sat-content/katello-backup-20180127153302
sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo
I also found that adding this line to /etc/sudoers help to avoid the error but this workaround is unacceptable in secured environments.
Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/22551 from this bug
Upstream bug assigned to firstname.lastname@example.org
Reproduced it and the fix "Default !requiretty" in the /etc/sudoers violates our security protocols.
Added the below entry to /etc/crontab file on the Satellite6
00 09 * * * root /usr/sbin/satellite-backup -y /var/tmp/sat-content --online-backup --skip-pulp-content >> /var/log/satellite/backups.log 2>&1
