Satellite upgrade to version 6.9 affects the host group configuration

Solution In Progress - Updated -


Upgrading Red Hat Satellite server to 6.9.0, 6.9.1 or 6.9.2 from 6.8 or below may result in data loss for host groups with kickstart repositories. This causes issues like provisioning a host with a hostgroup results in:

 ‘Could not create the host: Medium can't be blank‘ 

Customers existing Hostgroups defined in Satellite 6.8 or prior to the upgrade to 6.9 have lost their
their associated:

  • Content View
  • Lifecycle Environment
  • Content Source
  • Kickstart Repository ID

Customers would have to re-associate the values after upgrade which can cause significant impact.
