[RFE] Firstboot should provide an option to setup rhsm.conf for SAM
Last modified: 2016-07-29 08:50:39 EDT
Description of problem:
Firstly we must reset the rhsm.conf via installing http://[fqdn_sam]/pub/candlepin-cert-consumer-[fqdn_sam]-1.0-1.noarch.rpm, then we can register to SAM.
Pls provide an option to install the rpm in the firstboot to set the rhsm.conf if we choose "register to SAM" in firstboot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
We can't set rhsm.conf when choosing "register to SAM" via firstboot.

Not sure I understand the request.
If the package is installed with kickstart, the rhsm config should be pointing to the right place.
If the package isn't being installed via kickstart/anaconda, then I'm not sure.
Would the assumption be that the correct repos were setup in kickstart/anaconda?
1) installing rpms in the startup config (firstboot and/or the rhel7 stuff) is kind of unusual.
2) how do we bootstrap enough info to install the package securely. We would need at least repo url, repo ssl/ca certs, GPG key.
What could we assume is installed on the system at this point?
SAM repos configs?
SAM repo ssl/ca certs?
SAM repo entitlement certs?
SAM repo gpg key?
Not a base RHEL firstboot problem. We are not adding any new firstboot modules to our solution. We are moving to a new intial-setup module.
Deferring to Satellite product.
