Red Hat Satellite 6 installation failing because of java version

Solution In Progress - Updated -

Issue

  • When installing Red Hat Satellite 6, it complains:

    # katello-installer
    An OpenJDK version of Java greater than 1.7 should be installed.  For more details on the version currently installed, run 'java -version'
    
  • After setting java to 1.8, it's failing with error:
