Description Stephen Wadeley 2019-03-27 13:18:17 UTC
Document URL:

Section Number and Name: 6.1. Registering Clients Using the Bootstrap Script


2.9.7. Registering Hosts to Satellite 6 Using The Bootstrap Script


Describe the issue: 

RHEL 8 only has its own system python installed by default under 

The bootstrap script will not run if called in the normal ./ way

On a RHEL8 host you can run as follows:

~#] /usr/libexec/platform-python

Suggestions for improvement: 

Example commands shiuld mention that on RHEL8 you need to use a command as follows:
~#] /usr/libexec/platform-python
