Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1005263
Updating consumer groups
Last modified: 2015-02-28 16:58:29 EST
Description of problem:
We have a few consumers setup (CentOS). We are able to update the individual consumers without error. We grouped several like consumers together into a consumer group and tried to update the consumer group together. That fails and appears to be a bug in how the CLI is parsing the data it gets back from the server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Very. Every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. pulp-admin rpm consumer group package update --consumer-group-id=it-nonprod --names='*'
"An unexpected error has occurred. More information can be found in the client
log file ~/.pulp/admin.log."
Consumer logs show nothing on the consumers in the group. Gopher logs show that responses are being sent.

AttributeError: 'list' object has no attribute 'task_id'
Expected it to attempt to update all consumers in the consumer group
I downgraded the severity as more testing shows that the updates are actually happening on the client ends.
What's failing is the pulp-admin application.
pulp-admin rpm consumer group package update --consumer-group-id=it-nonprod --names='*'
That command properly sets up the different tasks and they run, however, when the command waits for a response from the servers, it treats that response as if it's one singular response when it's a list of responses (Tasks). So, as it tries to get the task_id, it fails because it's asking a list for a property instead of the first element in the list for that property.
pulp-admin tasks list
That command properly shows the tasks moving along to completion.
