Description Nenad Peric 2016-07-19 11:02:18 UTC
Description of problem:

If there is not enough space to sync things and work with Satellite after it has been installed, (namely / fs) a lot of funny things can happen which are not immediately obvious. 
Unknown errors (Something went wrong) and mongo connection issues can pop up which in turn would cause a lot of issues with Satellite itself. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Every time you run out of space in /

Steps to Reproduce:

Get the / FS to 100%, stuff just starts breaking but the errors Sat is giving out do not help in determining the real issue. 

Expected results:

Perhaps a feature should be added to the installer which warns the user if the remaining space in / fs is too low for syncing a few ISOs afterwards (say less than 20GB remaining?). 
It should not be a critical error, since the user could potentially allocate more space to / after the installation is complete. 
The default RHEL 7 installation allocates inadequate amount of space to the / fs for Satellite usage (around 50GB in my default setup).
