Description Vincent S. Cojot 2018-09-19 18:20:45 UTC
Description of problem:

Satellite 6.x is too aggressive in removing things on local host:


Instead of 'yum clean all', it would be sufficient to run:
'yum clean headers metadata dbcache'

The unexpected side effect of having bootstrap do that when you have a shared rpm cache on NFS, is that the first host to run bootstrap wiped the NFS rpms cache on the NFS server.
