Description Binglin Ji 2017-11-09 06:30:46 UTC
Description of problem:
Sometimes it is desired to NOT use the same proxy for both virt-who and RHSM traffic. In many environments, the proxy server doesn't allow itself to contact systems which are also on the local network. It is only allowed to be used to connect to systems which are external (such as the Internet). In this scenario, it is desired to negate or disable the proxy that is defined in /etc/rhsm/rhsm.conf and use no proxy at all.

To effectively negate the proxy configuration, forcing Satellite to connect directly to the virtualization provider, add NO_PROXY=* to the /etc/sysconfig/virt-who file.

notices that the version of python-rhsm should be greater than 1.17.9-1, and the version of virt-who should be greater than 0.17-11

Actual results:
whether or not proxy server is configured in /etc/rhsm/rhsm.conf, NO_PROXY=* won't add to /etc/sysconfig/virt-who, which may cause a failure communication between virt-who and hypervisors, because the proxy server may doesn't allow itself to contact systems which are on the local network.

Expected results:
add more options about this scenario.
