Description Chris Roberts 2018-10-09 16:13:09 UTC
Description of problem:
--reset is not clearing mongo correctly, so when the user runs reset and tries to create a new product/repo we get an error in the webui/api from Katello because that already exists.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Katello 3.7
Mongo 3.4
Satellite 6.4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 6.4
2. Add a product and repo
3. run --reset as installer flag and then try to make a product/repo with the same name.

Actual results:
Error saying a repo with that name already exists, nothing in katello db but looking at mongo [db.repos.find()] we see the repo is still there

Expected results:
For it to clear the db so I can make a new product/repo with the same name

Additional info:

Working on fixing this and will have a PR up soon, talked to mmccune and he suggests we target 6.4.Z
