Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1012134
The base channel change confirmation page contains overly specific text
Last modified: 2018-04-09 06:49:56 EDT
Description of problem:
If you change your base channel and Satellite is not able to automatically map a child channel to a child of the new base, then it will display a warning. That warning is overly specific, assuming that you are changing the base channel to an EUS channel instead of a generic custom channel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a system profile that is subscribed to at least one base channel.
2. Clone the base channel, but don't clone the child channel.
3. Change the systems base channel to the cloned channel
4. On the confirmation page you will see:
Warning: If you have installed packages from any channels that are highlighted above, those packages will no longer receive software updates, including critical security updates, when this system is moved to Extended Update Support.
Warning: If you have installed packages from any channels that are highlighted above, those packages will no longer receive software updates, including critical security updates, when this system is moved to the new base channel.
We have re-reviewed this bug, as part of an ongoing effort to improve Satellite/Proxy feature and bug updates, review and backlog.
This is a low priority bug and has no currently open customer cases. While this bug may still valid, we do not see it being implemented prior to the EOL of the Satellite 5.x product. As such, this is being CLOSED DEFERRED.
Closing now to help set customer expectations as early as possible. You are welcome to re-open this bug if needed.
