Description Colin Coe 2010-06-24 00:20:14 UTC
Description of problem:
org.migrateSystems API call fails on Xen hosts

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
v5.3.0

How reproducible:
Any use of org.migrateSystems using a Xen host's system ID results in an internal systems error.

Steps to Reproduce:
#!/usr/bin/perl
use Frontier::Client;
$client = new Frontier::Client(url    => "http://$HOST/rpc/api");
$session = $client->call('auth.login', $user, $pass);
@list = ( 1000011023 );
$client->call('org.migrateSystems', $session, 122, \@list);
$client->call('auth.logout', $session);
  
Actual results:
500 Internal Server Error

Expected results:
No error.  System 1000011023 should have been migrated from org 1 to org 122.

Additional info:
Extract from /var/log/tomcat5/catalina.out is attached.

Comment 8 Pavel Novotny 2011-03-07 15:16:02 UTC
VERIFIED.

Reproducer:
1) Prerequisite: You must have two organizations in your Satellite which trust
to each other.
2) Register a Xen-host machine into organization#1 with
Virtualization/Virtualization Platform entitlement.
3) Create a new virtual system on it (Xen-host machine -> Virtualization ->
Provisioning)
4) After guest system is being created, try to migrate the Xen-host system from
organization#1 to organization#2 using the API script portion mentioned in
#Description.

Results:
Old packages (spacewalk-java-1.2.39-35.1.el5sat):
500 Internal Server Error

New packages (spacewalk-java-1.2.39-37.el5sat):
System is successfully migrated.
