[Satellite 6] While upgrading katello-ca-consumer package on the client system registered to Satellite, it reverts rhsm.conf to point to CDN/RHN

Solution In Progress - Updated -


When we upgrade the katello-ca-consumer on our hosts registered with Satellite 6, the system is not able to communicate with it any more and we receive 'error: [Errno 111] Connection refused' error.

After checking content of the /etc/rhsm/rhsm.conf file we can see, that the 'hostname=' definition is newly pointing to cdn.redhat.com and not to our Satellite server URL.
