A couple of months ago, I tried to dive into Katello, starting from scratch
as a newbie.
During the install, and thanks to the help of some of you via IRC, I found
out that I had to specify the kind of scenario I wanted (that is to say :
It went well and I played a while with it.
Then, though not remembering why, I tried to add a role to this setup,
and tried to add the Foreman role, through --scenario=foreman .
It was this moment Nico knew… he f****d up. ™
A series of actions of mine lead to some random and terrible setup crashes,
and lead to a pause.
Another point also lead to a pause, when I realized that Katello 3.1 did
not support Puppet 4, though all the servers I intended to manage were to
use Puppet 4 as specified in their default repos.
All this to ask for some basic explanations about the Foreman+Katello
- When setting up such a server
- do I have to choose between the Katello role OR the Foreman role
- I can have a setup with both roles on the same server
- When adding the Katello role, it looked like the web GUI changed quite a
lot, adding or changing lots of things. Is all those changes at the expense
of pure Foreman features?
Thank you for enlightening these points.
