We are facing many dependence issues with katello-host-tools , subscription-manager and yum for suse 11/12/15 with forman+katello, Is there any plans or defined way to integrate suse hosts with katello like RHEL/CentOS. if we dont have any process other than katello-host-tools , subscription-manager and yum, we just thinking to follow below process, at least to manage the package management.
---- No subscription-manager/katello-host-tools –
Host register with puppet agent. – host register and facts collectd, host groups, proxy assign and content-view assigned.
prepare installed rpm data (using local commands).
import rpm data to katello server with the help of puppet agent. ( process required).
Calculate host errata based on that imported rpm data for that host.
REX/puppet module will use to manage the packages and patching activities.
Please let us know the process to import rpm data through api kind.
