*** Bug 1654880 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Is there a way to test the proposed solution?
What are you looking to test? RHEL 8 support is planned for Satellite 6.5.
If you are using 6.4 or earlier, and have synced the RHEL 8 content, you might be able to get it to work by manually editing the kickstart template, and adding a `repo` directive pointing at AppStream in addition to BaseOS, and updating any packages (e.g. use chrony instead of ntpd), but it wouldn't be a supported configuration.
I am running a Satellite 6.4 and wish to deploy RHEL 6.8 beta.
I am aware that both are not supported by Red Hat, that is always the case with Beta pre-releases.
Which kickstart template provided by Red Hat has to be edited to be able to do the deployment?
6.8 Beta? Do you mean 8.0?
It's called Kickstart default in Satellite 6.4, I believe, you'd have to unlock it or clone it to edit it.
RHEL 8.0 beta, sorry for the type error
Multiple repo lines in kickstart template causes an installation resource error in anaconda.
@Jan: Could you post the template you used?
The RHEL7 docs say it should work and when I last tried it it worked.
> You can add multiple repo lines.

The error message while using two repo lines in the kickstart provisioning file
Screen grab of the console showing that the installation source is invalid.

The kickstart provisioning file I created by cloning the kickstart default
@Adam: I added the a picture of the installation screen showing the error situation too.

When trying to fix the installation source issue only one repository is shown
I do not see both repositories, only the BaseOS
My guess would be you need to provide --baseurl=$URL_TO_REPO_IN_SATELLITE to the repo lines. Without it anaconda doesn't know where it should find the "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 for x86_64 - AppStream Beta (RPMs)" repository. But take this with a grain of salt, I don't have a machine at hand to test it
@Adam: I will test it.
@Adam: It did not fix the issue.
Even though I specified the baseurl as https URLs, anaconda shows the baseos as a http URL and fails to continue.
Will stick to an ISO installation from libvirtd for now.
