The Satellite “katello-installer” currently does not offer options to configure foreman proxy settings during installation. This leads to the problem that if you manually configured settings in /etc/foreman-proxy/settings.d/ these settings will be set back to default after each “katello-installer –upgrade”.
I already filed an RFE to extend the katello-installer options in the future (see here).

The bug leads to the problem that even if the upload of SCAP scan results from your client to Satellite 6 / Capsule was successfully performed no reports are visible in Satellite 6 web-ui for your host.
