i don’t see subscription-manager available for Oracle Linux version 7, is there a way can register OEL 7 to foreman.
Get subscription-manager from CentOS 7. You will need to filter an Oracle app that I cannot remember as it tries to replace subscription-manager.
UPDATE: I checked and the package to exclude is rhn-client-tools.
Oracle in their infinite wisdom made it so certain packages deprecate subscription-manager, so you need to filter out a few packages from the content-view to get them out of the way before you try to install subscription-manager.
I exclude the following packages from all my Oracle Linux base operating system views (including OL8):
Then I add an additional repository to the base operating system content view which contains the subscription-manager packages which I obtained from the following URLs:
EL6: https://copr-be.cloud.fedoraproject.org/results/dgoodwin/subscription-manager/epel-6-x86_64/ EL7: https://copr-be.cloud.fedoraproject.org/results/dgoodwin/subscription-manager/epel-7-x86_64/ EL8: https://copr-be.cloud.fedoraproject.org/results/dmann/subscription-manager/epel-8-x86_64/
Don’t forget to include the Katello Client Tools too if you’re using the bootstrap script.
