Description Stefan Meyer 2021-11-22 08:23:36 UTC
Description of problem:
- When rhsm or puppet is sending facts for the OS it updates the facts to the name of "RedHat".
- If an Ansible role is later run it uses "RedHatEnterprise" (RHEL 8) or "RedHatEnterpriseServer" (RHEL 7).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- Satellite 6.10.1

How reproducible:
- The OS is created automatically in Hosts =>  Operating Systems
- To check for the name go into each OS and check the Name field

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Register RHEl 8 client to Satellite
2. Run "subscription-manager facts --update"
3. The OS should be set to an OS which Name is "RedHat"
4. Run any playbook on the client that gathers facts
5. The OS for the client is updated to an OS that has "RedHatEnterprise" in its name 


Actual Results:
If the option "ignore_facts_for_operating system" is set to "no" (default) the OS for a client is updated
to the last fact that was reported. This leads to the OS for a client to constantly switch between the
different OS and double the OS entries created than required.

Expected Results:
The Ansible reported fact for OS should be matched to the one that is reported by RHSM or Puppet.


Additional info:
- The fact matcher for Ansible seems to use ansible_lsb.id which delivers different values

Created redmine issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/33980 from this bug

Hi Marek,

Should https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/33981 also be linked to this bugzilla?

Thanks!

iiuc https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/33980 fixes this for 6.10 as part of foreman_ansible and it's merged
and https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/33981 fixes it for 7.0 in Foreman as the parsing moved to core.

@Satellite 7.0 snap 9
foreman-3.1.1.4-1.el8sat.noarch

I observed the described issue on Satellite 6.10.2 with tfm-rubygem-foreman_ansible-6.3.4-1.el7sat.noarch installed.

First I was unable to reproduce it, but later on, I found out that redhat-lsb-core package needs to be installed on the host in order to get the ansible_lsb fact non-empty.

Having the following system
$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version:	:core-4.1-amd64:core-4.1-noarch
Distributor ID:	RedHatEnterpriseServer
Description:	Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.9 (Maipo)
Release:	7.9
Codename:	Maipo

and running Ansible roles on it caused "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.9 (Maipo)" OS to be created.

Similar thing happens for RHEL 8.
$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version:	:core-4.1-amd64:core-4.1-noarch
Distributor ID:	RedHatEnterprise
Description:	Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.5 (Ootpa)
Release:	8.5
Codename:	Ootpa

creates "Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.5 (Ootpa)" OS.

This behavior is no longer observed on Satellite 7.0.

Additional info:
BZ2056582 was created to track the same behavior on different OS variants.
