Description broskos 2018-10-26 07:48:54 UTC
Description of problem:
The rhel_subscribe task in openshift-ansible does not work correctly with Satellite.

Satellite requires that the katello-ca.rpm be installed prior to satellite registration, the task in the playbook tries to install the katello-ca.rpm at the end of the task.  

here is an example patch that I found fixes this issue for satellite while preserving the cdn registration functions:

This can probably be fixed in 3.11 and be backported to various releases.

Comment 2 Scott Dodson 2019-02-15 21:20:41 UTC
Thanks for the code reference however there appear to be no active cases related to this bug. As such we're closing this bug in order to focus on bugs that are still tied to active customer cases. Please re-open this bug if you feel it was closed in error or a new active case is attached.

We'd also be willing to accept a pull request too.

The katello-ca rpm package is installed prior to satellite registration (the failure is because no existing Satellite server in my testing env)
