Description Lukas Zapletal 2016-07-11 09:51:21 UTC
I'd also add info about --register-in-foreman option:

[root@ibm-x3655-04 ~]# satellite-installer -h | grep register
--foreman-proxy-register-in-foreman  Register proxy back in Foreman (default: true)

It is very useful to inform the user this can be optionally turned off in case Capsule can't (yet) reach Satellite and vice versa. Users very often hit this bug when installation seem to fail but it is only the registration step which fails (the puppet output is ugly and looks like its an installation error). In case network team did not yet setup firewall rules, user can still install Capsule. I'd make a subchapter called "Offline installation" describing this.

Low prio.
