I've been running separate testing threads with a Foreman server doing some stuff and a Katello server doing others. I'm not trying to push these onto the same server but cannot use the flag --enable-foreman-compute-libvirt when running "foreman-installer --scenario katello"

The error message I'm getting is:

ERROR: Unrecognised option '--enable-foreman-compute-libvirt'

This is something which is working on my Foreman installation, but only fails when I use "--scenario katello"

Fixes #18641 - Add compute resources


#1 Updated by Dominic Cleal over 5 years ago

  • Project changed from Installer to Katello

#2 Updated by Szilvia Racz over 5 years ago

Actually 'yum install -y foreman-libvirt; yum -y update' did enable the libvirt provider for me, and it works.

katello 3.3.0-3.el7
foreman-installer.noarch 1:1.14.1-1.el7

However '--enable-foreman-compute-libvirt' option is still not available in foreman-installer, not sure it's a bug or it is as expected.

#3 Updated by Duncan Innes over 5 years ago

Yes - manual install does work. I'd like the install to be done by the foreman-installer however. I don't want to have multiple steps involved in a clean install. Not sure why an option like this would be removed under scenario=katello.
