Description Jan Hutař 2018-05-04 14:16:40 UTC
Description of problem:
With callback variables configured in /etc/sysconfig/foreman and .../foreman-proxy, facts are not updated

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have Sat and host with role assigned
2. Configure callbacks on Sat as per https://theforeman.org/plugins/foreman_ansible/2.x/index.html#2.1Ansiblecallback - that means:
   [root@sat640snap1 ~]# tail -n 2 /etc/sysconfig/foreman
   [root@sat640snap1 ~]# tail -n 2 /etc/sysconfig/foreman-proxy 
   [root@sat640snap1 ~]# grep -e bin_ansible_callbacks -e callback_whitelist /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg 
   #callback_whitelist = timer, mail
   callback_whitelist = foreman
   #bin_ansible_callbacks = False
   bin_ansible_callbacks = True
3. Restart Sat so changes in /etc/sysconfig/... can take effect
   [root@sat640snap1 ~]# katello-service restart
4. Populate facts by manual playbook run as root on the Sat:
   [root@sat640snap1 ~]# whoami
   [root@sat640snap1 ~]# grep -e bin_ansible_callbacks -e callback_whitelist    /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg | grep -v '^#'
   callback_whitelist = foreman
   bin_ansible_callbacks = True
   [root@sat640snap1 ~]# export FOREMAN_URL=https://sat640snap1.example.com
   [root@sat640snap1 ~]# env | grep FOREMAN
   [root@sat640snap1 ~]# ansible --private-key ~foreman-proxy/.ssh/id_rsa_foreman_proxy -i inventory.ini -u root -m setup all
   rhel74.example.com | SUCCESS => {
   [root@sat640snap1 ~]# echo $?
5. Check Hosts -> All hosts -> <host> -> Facts -> ansible_date_time and wait
   some time till you see, say, "2 minutes ago" in "Reported at" column
6. Run the role with Hosts -> All hosts -> <host> -> Run Ansible roles
7. Again, check Hosts -> All hosts -> <host> -> Facts -> ansible_date_time

Actual results:
Timestamps in column "Reported at" in step 5. and 7. are almost same (plus the time step 6. took)

Expected results:
In step 7. you should get "less than a minute ago" or something like that. Also values should be changed

Comment 1 Martin Korbel 2018-05-15 07:35:10 UTC
The facts updating by button "Run Ansible roles" (step 6.) does not work  in  generally.

I get this error:

[WARNING]: Failure using method (v2_playbook_on_stats) in callback plugin
(<ansible.plugins.callback.foreman.CallbackModule object at 0x2d88790>):
('Connection aborted.', error(111, 'Connection refused'))
Exit status: 0

Manual running (step 4.) works well and update fact in Satellite.

VERIFIED on Sat6.4#11

We don't change anything in configuration. All work fine.
