Fixed In Version: oscap-anaconda-addon-1.1.1-2.el8
Doc Type: Known Issue
Doc Text:
.`Server with GUI` and `Workstation` installations are not possible with CIS Server profiles The CIS Server Level 1 and Level 2 security profiles are not compatible with the `Server with GUI` and `Workstation` software selections. As a consequence, a RHEL 8 installation with the `Server with GUI` software selection and CIS Server profiles is not possible. An attempted installation using the CIS Server Level 1 or Level 2 profiles and either of these software selections will generate the error message: ---- package xorg-x11-server-common has been added to the list of excluded packages, but it can't be removed from the current software selection without breaking the installation. ---- If you need to align systems with the `Server with GUI` or `Workstation` software selections according to CIS benchmarks, use the CIS Workstation Level 1 or Level 2 profiles instead.

Moving to oscap-anaconda-addon, as the failure of the installation is not content's fault.
