Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1017417
389-base-ds incorrectly labled as core
Last modified: 2018-03-16 02:44:29 EDT
Description of problem:
Package manifest labels 389-base-ds as core when it is (apparently) not core.
Steps to Reproduce:
A customer was asking about standing up an LDAP server in a supported fashion via the 389-base-ds package we ship and I told him that would not be supported and referenced this:
The package is *only* supported as a prereq of IDM and RHDS. However, he looked up the package manifest and sure enough, that particular package is flagged as core:
So either the kbase article is incorrect (unlikely since it was explictly created so that people didn't install 389 for full support) or the package manifest is incorrect.
There was more discussion on the internal mailing list about this here:
The Package Manifest is generated by a script so there might be inconsistencies.
The kbase article is specific for 6.2; is it still valid for later RHEL versions as well? The problem is that for RHEL 6, there is only a single Package Manifest that is re-generated upon GAs of minor RHEL versions (the current one was created with RHEL 6.4).
If 389-ds-base is not a core package, I can correct the info and re-publish the book asap. And will check later when generating a new book for 6.5 to make sure the info is correct. Is it OK?
BTW pki-* packages and probably new bind-pkcs11 package have the very
same problem, i.e. should be listed as "non-core".
We should be listing the following as non-core packages, as they are only supported for use as a part of ipa-server, Red Hat Directory Server, or Red Hat Certificate System:
These are all incorrectly listed as "core" in the current RHEL 7 package manifest. In addition, the following appear to be incorrect in the RHEL 6 package manifest:
While reviewing package manifest for RHEL 7.2, I just found out that following packages should also be listed as non-core packages:
The requested changes have been made to the RHEL 7.2 version, now published at:
We are working on updating the 6.7 version.
