Hi Together

Is there a way automatically provisioning Linux Server on Nutanix Platform with RedHat Satellite? It doen’t seem there is a nutanix provider for satellite.

And this link covers only Redhat subscription management: Simplified Subscription Management for AHV with Red Hat Satellite Server

Someone tried “Libvirt” Provider in satellite with Nutanix?

Kind Regard

Steve

Just looking at doing similar but with Foreman rather than satellite. I have no idea if libvirt will work with AHV or not. Did you try it? Did you get anywhere?

Hi Steve,

could you check if this document covers your question?

Sergei - thanks for that link, I’ve been also needing the ability to use virt-who against Nutanix from Sat6.  However, this doesn’t address the question, that answer is for RHEL clients running on Nutanix to have their licenses automatically updated in Sat6 via virt-who, rather than provisioning (building) new RHEL VMs in Nutanix via compute resource.  

I also would like to know if Nutanix has any info on this topic - we use Satellite for all RHEL server builds, and would like to be able to have a compute resource in Sat6 to do this.  I have gotten some to build using a custom iso from Sat6, but largely gave up after the first build and just cloned the rest.

Hello all,

Any update on this ?

I am desperately looking for a robust solution.

I am yet to explore rhel image builder and Packer but they do not seem to provide full customization of disk layout.

Maybe I will just end up setting up a separate kickstart server.
