Description

Cloned from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1217821
Description of problem:

In EL6 environments, when you list chkconfig info for the system you'll see the foreman/katello/pulp services are all set to start at runlevel 2. Network doesn't start until runlevel 3, so I expect all services to be off for runlevels 0,1,2,6 and on for 3,4,5. Here is the current output from a sat 6.1 QA box:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 6.0.z

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Install Sat6 on EL6
2) list chkconfig output with `sudo chkconfig --list`
3) Observe the foreman/pulp/katello services are all enabled for runlevel 2

Actual results:

Observe a line like this one for all sat6 services

pulp_workers 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off

Expected results:

I expected it to look the way Pulp upstream looks on EL6. In Pulp upstream I can do:
0) a fresh pulp install on EL6
1) I add pulp_workers to chkconfig using `sudo chkconfig --add pulp_workers`
2) I then list the chkconfig services `sudo chkconfig --list`
3) observe the correct line is there:

pulp_workers 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off

Additional info:

This was discovered on a customer case where there system wouldn't boot because sat6 services were being started before networking and were preventing the systsem to boot. So there's been at least 1 customer issue related to this problem.

Also I suspect it works in many places today because many init scripts have a Required-Start line like this one:

  1. Required-Start: $network

$network can be redefined, and if it is it could cause satellite 6 services on misconfigured machines to start before networking does which caused sat6 to break on the customer case.

This seems to be getting set by this line in the installer: https://github.com/Katello/katello-installer/blob/master/modules/mongodb/manifests/server/service.pp
