Description Michal Dekan 2019-03-07 15:44:54 UTC
Description of problem:

Full Host ISO generated with 1 byte size init ram disk with on demand download policy kickstart repository

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Satellite 6.3.5

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Sync RHEL 7.6 Server Kicstart repository with on demand download policy
2. Generate Full Host ISO image
3. Check content of the generated ISO image

Actual results:

$ tree
├── boot
│   ├── dhat76_7_6_x86_64_initrd_img
│   └── redhat76_7_6_x86_64_vmlinuz
├── boot.cat
├── isolinux.bin
└── isolinux.cfg

1 directory, 5 files

$ ll boot
total 0
-r-xr-xr-x. 1 root root 0 Feb  4 16:09 dhat76_7_6_x86_64_initrd_img
-r-xr-xr-x. 1 root root 0 Feb  4 16:09 redhat76_7_6_x86_64_vmlinuz

Expected results:

vmlinuz and initrd.img generated properly on the ISO.

Comment 3 Bryan Kearney 2019-03-08 17:06:58 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/25992 has been resolved.

Comment 5 Lukas Zapletal 2019-03-13 13:59:59 UTC
WORKAROUND: Do not use on-demand policy for kickstart repos if you plan to generate bootdisks for them.

Comment 6 Lukas Zapletal 2019-04-02 13:36:38 UTC
I will say this is also a regression because this previously worked until on-demand policy was introduced in 6.2. However it is too late, we will ship this in Satellite 6.6.

Comment 9 Roman Plevka 2019-09-10 10:56:32 UTC
on sat6.6.0 snap #19

1. i synced rhel8 kickstart repos with on_demand dl policy
2. i created a record for a rhel8 bare metal host
3. I downloaded full bootdisk image
