[RHOS] Why do we see the error "sh: vdsmdummy: command not found" when RHS node is deployed using Foreman?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • RHS node was deployed using Foreman Provisioning by uploading the RHS ISO to Foreman server.
  • When Foreman runs puppet on the node, we see below error:
sh: vdsmdummy: command not found
sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `|'
sh: -c: line 0: `/sbin/arp -en -i ;vdsmdummy; | sed -e 1d'
