Hi,

I want to setup RHEL repo in katello but as I have read so far, it require
manifest file which is only available via satellite subscription.

Is there a way I can setup RHEL repo without satellite subscription in
katello. I know it is possible in Pulp by mentioned SSL certificates but
not sure how to do in katello.

Appreciate any pointers.

Thanks,
Gaurav

Hi,
you should be able to create a manifest for a Subscription Asset Manager Organisationen. These manifests should work fine, I'm not sure why RedHat does it this way :smiley:

Hi Klaas,

Are you referring to create a manifest from Redhat Portal? As I said that
would required satellite subscription.

If there is another way please let me know.

Thanks

https://access.redhat.com/management/distributors?type=satellite
then select "Subscription Asset Manager Organizations"
that should work without a sat subscription.

No doesnt show me anything there…

Please open a support ticket for this. It has always been the case that
having a RHEL subscription should provide access to creating subscription
manifests for use in Subscription Asset Manager (an older on-premise
subscription management tool from Red Hat) as well as foreman w/ katello.
Please share your ticket number with me, if you don't mind.
Thanks!

I am a bit new to RH subscriptions and Katello - trying to download manifest but a bit stuck with RH Subscription management site.

  1. We have valid RHEL and RHEV subscriptions
  2. I’ve created organization as described above
  3. I don’t see any subscriptions available to this new organization :frowning:

Why is that and how to fix this?

Thank you!


#10

I used these steps to get a manifest file that I could use with Katello without a subscription:

  • Log in to RHN
  • Click on “Satellite Organizations”
  • Create an organization by clicking the “Create a Subscription Management Application” button.
  • Type should be “Subscription Asset Manager Organizations”
  • Select Version 1.4
  • Click on the newly created organization
  • Attache desired subscriptions
  • Click the “Download Manifest button”

If you create your org as a “Satellite” type, it wants you to get a subscription.


#11

That’s what I see… No subscriptions available to this new org, can’t download manifest.
Removing checkbox from “Only show subscriptions that match this Subscription Asset Manager Organization” does not help.


#12

It looks like Red Hat portal (or our company’s profile in their DB) has some issues. I’m working with RedHat support last few days, but they not yet provided any useful info.


#13

I hate to keep dredging up an old thread, but it might be handy to keep the context.

For anyone using RHEL hosts with Foreman, how are you handling the katello-agent installation? The version from RHEL 7 common is old and doesn’t support collecting errata or pushing updates from the Foreman web UI.

I’ve added the external katello repo at https://fedorapeople.org/groups/katello/releases/yum/3.4/client/el7/x86_64 but it also has a dependency on EPEL which I’ve then added as a product. Once the katello-agent version 3 is installed I can run push updates, but on a RHEL7 RHV (ovirt) hosted-engine configured host I get conflicts with collectd versions in rhel-7-server-rhv-4-mgmt-agent-rpms repo and collectd versions in EPEL.

I’ve managed to download manifest from Red Hat but now my Katello 3.5 give me this error while importing it.

Error refreshing manifest. PG::Error: ERROR: null value in column "virt_who" violates not-null constraint DETAIL: Failing row contains (16, 8a818193625598050162559982900004, 2018-03-24 01:22:27.957362, 2018-03-24 01:25:28.906133, null, 5973939, 11442353, null, 1, 2017-07-11 04:00:00, NORMAL, 2018-07-11 03:59:59, null, t, 0, f, f, null). : UPDATE "katello_pools" SET "multi_entitlement" = $1, "account_number" = $2, "contract_number" = $3, "quantity" = $4, "start_date" = $5, "end_date" = $6, "consumed" = $7, "pool_type" = $8, "virt_who" = $9, "updated_at" = $10 WHERE "katello_pools"."id" = $11

However in Manifest history it says
**ORGNAME** file imported successfully.

I have a proper active RH subscriptions associated with my “Subscription Asset Manager
Organization” in Red Hat Portal.

After import, I see the
Upstream Subscription ORGNAME
Upstream type “sam”

However, when I go to Content => Red Hat Subscription I see no subscriptions attached.
I see no RH repos uder "Content => Red Hat Repositories"
I see no RH products “Content ==> Products”

Generally speaking I guess manifest was not fully imported…

Any ideas?


#15

This says this problem was fixed in Katello 3.4.5 Katello 3.4.4 Released

I run 3.5.0.1 and it still there.


#16

Upgrade 3.5 to 3.6 RC1 has solved this issue.
I was able to successfully install manifest and sync RH repos.

Thanks everyone!
