Description

Cloned from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1439978

Description of problem:

Installation medium of a host provisioned from Foreman should updated automatically when a base OS is upgraded.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.2 / Foreman 1.11+

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Build host on 6.6 from a hostgroup with 6.6 and 6.6 install media configured
2. Upgrade host to 6.8
3. Ensure that the host view in satellite shows 6.8 (Operating System RHEL Server 6.8)
4. Click build to rebuild host it will used the media attached earlier.

Actual results:

Installatoin medium is not getting updated when OS is updated.

Expected results:

When Base OS is updated Foreman should update the installation medium.

Additional info:

Customer is not using Puppet environment. Updating the installation medium will help customer on manually updating the medium, reduce update timing and also resolve medium validation error.

We could probably introduce some "auto-assign to new OS" checkbox to installation media. When new OS is created by facts upload, it could link existing media for a given host previous OS.
