Katello 2.4 Documentation

Provisioning

See the Foreman manual for general information on configuring provisioning.

Templates

Katello ships a number of templates in addition to the standard Foreman ones. When using these templates, if a host has a Host group with an Activation Key, it will register as a Content Host automatically.

  • Katello Kickstart Default - Kickstart template for Fedora, CentOS, RHEL, and other Red Hat-compatible operating systems.
  • Katello Kickstart Default Finish - image-based provisioning
  • Katello Kickstart Default User Data - cloud-init template for EC2 and OpenStack
  • subscription_manager_registration - Snippet for registering a host for content

To customize any of the above templates, simply clone them and add your changes.

When you synchronize a repository with a distribution such as Fedora or CentOS, Katello will automatically create the operating system and assign these default templates. You may change the defaults by going to Administer > Settings, and selecting the Katello tab.
