Comments 6 Posted In Red Hat Satellite Is there a way to see what content view the host is using, from the host. Latest response 2019-06-27T11:24:31+00:00 I would like to check from the host what content view the host is using, I know this can be done from the satellite using 'hammer host list' command, but I am looking to check from the actual client.

GG Active Contributor 171 points 26 June 2019 4:54 PM Gene Golbraykh Thank You for the reply Stephen, The above command shows you the Life Cycle environment but it dosnt show you if you are using "Default Organization View" or a any custom views. Red Hat Guru 1732 points 27 June 2019 12:21 PM Pavel Moravec It does show me the CV name: # subscription-manager repos --list | grep URL Repo URL: https://pmoravec-caps64-rhev.gsslab.brq2.redhat.com/pulp/repos/RedHat/Library/cv_tools_only/content/dist/rhel/server/7/7Server/$basearch/sat-tools/6.4/os .. Here, RedHat is organization name, Library is Lifecycle Environment, and cv_tools_only is the CV name. In case the Content Host is in Default Content View, then this subdirectory is missing in the path, and the path looks like: https://pmoravec-caps64-rhev.gsslab.brq2.redhat.com/pulp/repos/RedHat/Library/content/dist/rhel/server/7/7Server/$basearch/sat-tools/6.4/os So until you have a Content View named content, no confusion :) GG Active Contributor 171 points 27 June 2019 1:20 PM Gene Golbraykh Yes you are correct, I was just hoping to see "Default Content View" Thank You SW Red Hat Guru 4317 points 27 June 2019 9:25 AM Stephen Wadeley Hello Sorry that was not helpful. I searched the Knowledgebase but found nothing helpful. It is possible to install hammer on a system other than the Satellite if that helps. Then you could use "hammer host info --name <client.example.com>" from that system even. But I guess that would be too much trouble. Maybe a curl to the API? SW Red Hat Guru 4317 points 27 June 2019 9:51 AM Stephen Wadeley Hello You could use "hammer host set-parameter" to write the info to the host. this is interesting: https://www.reddit.com/r/redhat/comments/bzbixz/64_satellite_and_beyond_frustrated/ EDIT: No, that would still require hammer or Satellite to view the info, not exactly what you want.
