Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: RHEL 7 now requires 1GB of ram for a successful installation. Consequence: Satellite 5.6 was only giving RHEL 7 guests 756 MB of ram by default. This caused the guest provisioning to fail. Fix: Increase ram given to RHEL 7 guests to 1GB. Result: Guest provisioning now works correctly.

Description Lukáš Hellebrandt 2014-01-28 13:45:01 UTC
Description of problem:

In Satellite, there is 768MB set as minimal amount of RAM for a RHEL7 machine.
Such a little memory leads to RHEL7 not being restarted after kickstart.
Official minimum memory requirement for RHEL7 is 1024MB.

How reproducible:
Create a new kickstart for a virtual machine, RHEL7, 768MB RAM.
rhn_check on a host.

Actual results:
After machine installation, the system doesn't restart (No warnings)

Expected results:
System should restart after being installed

Additional info:
After setting to 1024 everything works fine.

I'm assigning this to Stephen, who has been active with this problem before.

Hmm, previously the RHEL 7 guest memory requirements were raised from 512 MB to 768 MB in bug 1034774, but it looks like that is no longer enough.
