Description Jan Hutař 2013-09-10 11:04:49 EDT
Description of problem:
In "4.4.3. Configuring Servers for Enhanced Entitlements Reporting" step 5 there is:

  For added security, prepend the public key content with the following: 
    command="/usr/bin/spacewalk-report $SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND"
  This ensures the swreport only uses the spacewalk-report command.

This made me think it is not required (it is good "only" for enhanced security), but it is required. When you do not do this, Splice fails to sync data.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Current development version.
