Description Jiří Dostál 2017-01-02 13:41:33 UTC
Description of problem:
When rhn_check is processing some action (executes script for example) and gets terminated, rhn_check exits immediately and doesn't report any status. This might result in inconsistent action states.

This Bugzilla has been created from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1260527 

This issue 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhn-client-tools-2.6.2-1

How reproducible:
Always on RHEL 7

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Register a RHEL 7 VM to satellite 5.7
2.  Assign provisioning entitlement to RHEL 7 system
3.  Subscribe RHEL 7 system to RHN tools channel.
4.  Install rhncfg and osad packages on RHEL 7 system using below command :
    # yum install rhncfg*
    # yum install osad
5   enable all actions for RHEL 7 system by executing below command :
    # rhn-actions-control --enable-all
6.  Go to RHEL 7 systems profile on satellite webui.
7.  Click on "Details" tab.
8.  Click on "Remote Command".
9.  In "Script" section add following command
    shutdown -h now  
10. Select appropriate time interval and date.
11. Click on schedule.
12. Now wait till command is executed. Once system is shutdown observe its status satellite webui.

Actual results:

1. Command is executed and system shuts down.
2. Status on satellite webUI remains as "The client has not yet completed this action"
3. When we power-on the system again the task gets executed and system gets shutdown
This goes in a loop. Action is never marked as completed.

Expected results:

1. Command is executed and system shuts down.
2. Status on satellite webUI should be : Completed

I try reproducer on RHEL7.3 with package rhn-client-tools-2.0.2-8.el7.noarch

Error: Client execution returned "Fatal error in Python code occurred [[6]]" (code -1)

Verified on RHEL 7.4 with rhn-client-tools-2.0.2-11.el7.noarch
