Description Hao Chang Yu 2021-04-30 05:41:56 UTC
Description of problem:
Failed to create a host using a nested hostgroup because all values that inherited from the parent host group are not set, such has content_view_id, content_source_id, lifecycle_environment_id and kickstart_repository_id.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a parent hostgroup. Set the content source, content_view, lifecycle environment and the synced content.
2. Create a nested hostgroup that inherit the above values.
3. Create a host using the nested hostgroup.

hammer host create --name "my-test-client1" --hostgroup-id <the nested hostgroup id> --location "Default Location" --organization "MYORG" --mac="xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx" --domain-id 1  --ask-root-password yes --subnet apac-mps --ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Actual results:
Could not create the host:
  Medium can't be blank
  Content view can't be blank
  Lifecycle environment can't be blank

Expected results:
host created successfully

Additional info:
The "inherited_#{attribute}" method returns an array so rails is unable to set the nested attribute.

# foreman-rake console
Satellite 6.8 output: Hostgroup.find(21).inherited_kickstart_repository_id
=> 707   <========== Correct

Satellite 6.9 output: Hostgroup.find(21).inherited_kickstart_repository_id
=> [707]  <========= Wrong

Make the following change in "/opt/theforeman/tfm/root/usr/share/gems/gems/katello-" fixed the issue.

Comment 1 Bryan Kearney 2021-05-09 16:21:21 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/32464 has been resolved.

Comment 3 Tasos Papaioannou 2021-06-07 16:55:06 UTC
Verified on 6.9.3 snap 1.0.

1. Enable and sync Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Server Kickstart x86_64 7.9 (rhel-7-server-kickstart).
2. Create a parent hostgroup, selecting content source, content view, lifecycle environment, and Operating System fields.
3. Create a nested hostgroup that inherits those values from the parent hostgroup.
4. Create a host using the nested hostgroup:

# hammer host create --name test-host --hostgroup-id 2 --location-id 2 --organization-id 1 --mac '0e:05:fb:8f:22:d8'
Host created.
