Description of problem:
Many customers configure their Satellites to reach the CDN via an HTTP Proxy.
By default, we guide the customers to install virt-who on the Satellite server. As such, the virt-who configuration will attempt to use the configured HTTP proxy to submit virt-who data and will fail.
As it is rare that the HTTP proxy allows this connection and as such, we request that we set 'NO_PROXY=*' in /etc/sysconfig/virt-who
Note: the virt-who wizard allows you not to set a proxy, but when no proxy is configured in the plugin, virt-who defaults to using the same proxy as RHSM / subscription-manager.
To TRULY set no proxy (either implicit or explicit), we need to set NO_PROXY=*
