Fix foreman reports in Satellite 6.0

Foreman reports in Satellite 6.0 doesn’t work out of the box, first we need to setup our SMTP settings.

Error that we face without SMTP configured:

[email protected]:/var/log/foreman# /usr/sbin/foreman-rake reports:summarize
rake aborted!
getaddrinfo: Name or service not known

Tasks: TOP => reports:summarize
(See full trace by running task with --trace)

We just need to configure our settings in /etc/foreman/email.yaml like:

[email protected]:/var/log/foreman# cat /etc/foreman/email.yaml
# Outgoing email settings
production:
  delivery_method: :smtp
  smtp_settings:
    address: smtp.example.com
    port: 25
    domain: example.com
    authentication: :none

And if we run our reports once again we’ll get our email
