Change Satellite 6 template URL

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Red Hat Satellite 6.6


  • The URL of the templates during provisioning a new machine is pointing to port 8000 instead of 80.
  • Connecting to port 8000 is not allowed on the network infrastructure devices.


1) Change the foreman proxy template URL to be for port 80.

# satellite-installer --foreman-proxy-template-url http://[SATELLITE FQDN]

Root Cause

  • After satellite upgrade from 6.3 to 6.6 , the template URL has been changed to 8000 and new provisioned machines can not fetch the templates from satellite.

Diagnostic Steps

  • Check the current foreman-proxy-template-url value using satellite-installer :
# satellite-installer --full-help | grep foreman-proxy-template-url
