RHEL/CentOS versions up to 7.3 prompt for user creation after Bare Metal Deploy

Problem description

After bare metal deployment, on the first start, RHEL/CentOS versions up to 7.3 prompt for the creation of user account and password. This action is mandatory to start the OS. The issue is verified on gnome-based installation. To note, the deploy of the setup completes successfully and the root user is correctly installed.

The issue is caused by a service installed by package gnome-initial-setup. This service no longer exists in later versions of the package. A possible workaround is to edit the manual tab as follows:
yum group mark blacklist gnome-desktop
This set of instructions blocks the installation of gnome-initial-setup during the deploy and "yum group mark blacklist gnome-desktop" and prevents future installations after updates.
