Section Number and Name: 2.5 Installing a capsule server

Describe the issue: 
When setting up our Redhat Satelllite server and a Capsule server. We are having an issue where we are unable to install Capsule on the first capsule server. We are on Step 2.5 of the Capsule 6.4 install instructions.

When we run a 'yum repolist' on our Capsule server, the 'rhel-7-servers-rpm' repo shows '0' packages.

However if we view the product within Satellite itself, the product appears to have over 23,000 packages downloaded

The other products show the appropriate number of packages when we run a 'yum repolist enabled'. We are unsure why the 'rhel-7-server-rpms/7Server/x86_64' shows '0' pachages.

Suggestions for improvement: 
You may have to run the  yum clean all command to refresh the yum metadata and show the correct package count on the capsule server.
