I would like to use my katello synced yum repos as installation media for CentOS hosts but when I try to add a new host the option “synced content” in OS >> media selection is always greyed out and I cannot select it. I have read that my mirror should include a “kickstart tree” so I can use it to install the OS but I am not sure what this means.
Can anyone point me to a centos yum repo including a kickstart tree which can be used to install the hosts or is this something that I should create outside katello?
I know I can create an “installation media” pointing to the url of my local yum repo but I think the recommended option is to use “synced content” isn’t it?
in the “operating system tab” I select
OS: CentOS 7.4.1708
but the “Synced Content” check is always greyed out and I cannot select it. I cannot select nothing in the “media” section neither. If I try to create the host it fails and I get a red warning next to the “media” section which says “cant’ be blank”
I have tried to review the options in hosts >> operating systems but I cannot find how to associate the operating system “CentOS 7.4.1708” with my content view “Centos_7.4”
I am out of ideas…maybe I have to assign the activation key to this host somehow?
I don’t know what I was doing wrong but after starting from scratch (I have deleted all content views, products, activation keys and operating systems) I have created a new content view for Centos7 a then a new operating system “CentOS 7” has been automatically created and when I select this operating system I can select “synced content” as installation source.
