Description wes hayutin 2012-03-27 21:17:08 UTC
Description of problem:

Part of what we are shipping for CF 1.0 is the ability of cloud engine instances to register to a katello server.

Known limitations have been found in ec2, and are not part of the scope of this bug.  The scope of this bug should be for rhevm, vsphere providers.

CloudForms Devel needs to provide a reference script that provides the minimum calls to register a cloud engine instance to katello via config server.

QE would like to qualify the script and sign off on it.

We would like to see the script shipped or published as doc.

Looking for two pieces of the puzzle here I think..

minimum amount of scripting needed to register to katello 
minimum amount of deployable xml to register to katello

Greg, please connect with Steve or Scott from ref-arch to get what they have already put together for this and make sure it works properly. Feel free to grab whomever you need to help from the System Engine side.

Comment 4 Greg Blomquist 2012-03-28 15:22:55 UTC
Working spr and scollier to get what they put together before.

Comment 5 Greg Blomquist 2012-03-28 22:18:29 UTC
The fix we're putting in place for this is to add an "examples" directory in
all config servers.

The directory will be accessible from:


The first example will be a deployable written by jlaska that connects a
launched guest back to a Katello server.

That example can be seen here: 

Comment 6 Greg Blomquist 2012-03-29 13:22:34 UTC
Pushed change to our 1.0 branch for config server.

Brew build:

Comment 8 wes hayutin 2012-03-29 14:39:04 UTC
/me is looking for where the product cert is dropped in for ec2 instances.

Comment 10 Greg Blomquist 2012-04-02 15:13:34 UTC

There was some miscommunication here (i.e., I missed something).

jlaska included a second deployable example that drops the product cert for ec2 instances.  I didn't realize we were including that for this drop.

I'm moving this back to assigned to pick these changes up.

Comment 12 wes hayutin 2012-04-06 00:03:41 UTC
k.. we should open a separate bugs for 

  1. ec2
  2. pre-rhel6.2

1. registering from ec2 instances will not block the release as its GSS supported only.

2. pre-rhel6.2 registration will block the release of CF. We need this to work on  RHEL5U6 - current, and RHEL 6.x

Comment 13 Greg Blomquist 2012-04-10 14:22:28 UTC
I'll just push the fix against this bug.
