Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 847194
Satellite option web.smtp_server not documented in /etc/rhn/default
Last modified: 2014-10-06 09:46:22 EDT
Description of problem:
A default for web.smtp_server is currently not set within /etc/rhn/default, which makes it hard for customers to find this option without asking GSS or hunting around online/in source (the option defaults to 'localhost' in code already).
Ideally, adding the lines of:
# Hostname/IP of an SMTP server for sending notifications and traceback
# alerts to Satellite users
web.smtp_server = localhost
Alternatively for Satellite, (and potentially a clone of this Bugzilla) a Documentation product that describes the various options for the backend, and various components.
This could also be resolved if https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=496823 was pulled in w/ the smtp_server option documented.
Posted a patch upstream for consideration https://www.redhat.com/archives/spacewalk-devel/2012-September/msg00013.html
Patch reviewed and committed to spacewalk master as
847194 - Document & set default web.smtp_server
