2. hammer --debug host create --name=test --root-password='changeme' --organization-id=1 --location-id=2 --hostgroup="RHEL 7 Server 64-bit HG" --compute-resource='libvirt' --compute-attributes="cpus=1, memory=1073741824, start=1" --interface="primary=true, compute_type=bridge, compute_bridge=katello_latest, compute_model=virtio" --volume="capacity=10G,format_type=qcow2"

Actual results:

Hammer throws error as "Could not create the host" but when you see in UI, it is successfully created.

Expected results:

Hammer should not throw error.

Additional info: Regression.

The issue is observed while provisioning:
        - from UI also
        - on VMWare and GCE

Comment 9 Marek Hulan 2019-06-24 12:30:01 UTC
Linking a known upstream issue, should be fixed by now (since snap 6)

Comment 10 Nikhil Kathole 2019-06-24 12:40:56 UTC

Version tested:
Satellite 6.6 snap 7

# rpm -qa | grep satellite

PR linked is not part of satellite snap. I guess we are missing cherry-pick.

Comment 11 Bryan Kearney 2019-06-24 14:05:12 UTC
Upstream bug assigned to ekohlvan@redhat.com

Comment 13 Ewoud Kohl van Wijngaarden 2019-06-26 11:29:02 UTC
Not sure why the automation didn't pick this up and moved it to POST, but upstream it's been fixed in 1.22.0-RC2.

Comment 14 Nikhil Kathole 2019-07-03 10:58:43 UTC

version tested:
Satellite 6.6.0 snap 9

Successfully created host with hammer.
