Description Ashish Humbe 2019-02-11 15:39:45 UTC
Description of problem:

"Recommended repositories" page on Satellite 6.5 page listing some non-relevant repositories like: 

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Server - Extended Life Cycle Support (RPMs)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Server - Extended Update Support (RPMs)

>> Ideally, ELS and EUS repos are not very commonly used. 

Red Hat Satellite Tools 6.4 (for RHEL 5 Server - ELS) (RPMs)

Red Hat Satellite Capsule 6.4 (for RHEL 7 Server) (RPMs)

Red Hat Satellite Tools 6.4 (for RHEL 7 Server) (RPMs)

Red Hat Satellite Tools 6.4 (for RHEL 6 Server) (RPMs)

These all repositories are related to Satellite 6.4, on Satellite 6.5 the recommended repositories should list Satellite tools 6.5 and Capsule 6.5 repos. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.5 SNAP 15

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to Content -> Red Hat Repositories page
2. Click on Recommended Repositories on/off button. 

Actual results:
Some ELS and EUS repos are listed as recommended and also lists Sat6.4 repos instead of Satellite 6.5 tools and Capsule 6.5 repos. 

Expected results:
On Satellite 6.5 the recommended repositories should list Satellite tools 6.5 and Capsule 6.5 repos and there should not be ELS/EUS repos.

Comment 4 Rich Jerrido 2019-02-12 19:30:02 UTC
The intent of the 'recommended repositories' page was to prevent users from using the 'dot-release' version-locked (7.5, 7.6, etc) repositories for RHEL, preferring them to use 7Server. In the case of EUS & ELS, we cannot be _too_ prescriptive here because if a customer has access to them, what criteria do we have to tell them that they are no recommended?

For RHEL Server RPMs, (5Server/6Server/7Server is recommended). All others (5.9, 6.5, 7.1, etc) are not. 
For kickstart repos, there are only version-locked repos as that is the nature of kickstarts. 
EUS/AUS/TUS/E4S are only available in version-locked formats and should be ignored. 

As far as I see, this is not a bug. I can see a use case where we can (such as mentioned in comment #0) not highlight repos for a version of Satellite that is isn't the one installed. (ie dont show or recommend repos for 6.4 if the satellite is 6.5). But that would be an RFE that should be discussed in conjunction with UXD.

Created redmine issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/26303 from this bug

Comment 6 Brad Buckingham 2019-03-11 19:48:02 UTC
Based upon comment 4, currently updating the recommended Satellite versions from 6.4 to 6.5; however, leaving the EUS/ELS in place.
