Description Corey Welton 2013-10-18 22:04:01 EDT
Description of problem:
When a satellite has x nodes implemented and subsequently removed, the repos remain, and are seen in yum queries across other valid nodes.  It is conceivable that this could get unwieldy very quickly.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Register three nodes to parent sat
2.  Remove these nodes and register three more
3.  yum install <some package> on a child node

Actual results:

[root@hp-dl320egen8-01 ~]# yum install screen

This, despite:

[root@mgmt2 ~]# katello -u admin -p admin node list
                                                                Node List

6  mgmt8.rhq.lab.eng.bos.redhat.com         Katello Infrastructure: [Library,DEV,QA,GA]   

Expected results:

We should probably remove whatever repos are there and getting spread across nodes, if the repos are no longer valid/useful.  If a user has a bunch of nodes, and then, say, gets a big hardware refresh and no longer needs the old nodes, all the stale repo stuff remains for those old nodes.  Yes, the can probably be removed manually but that could be annoying.

Comment 2 Justin Sherrill 2014-06-02 21:32:40 EDT
Reason for moving to 6.0.4:

we don't currently create capsule cert repos since we can't upload RPMS via the api/cli currently.  

This functionality is likely to return, so this bug will probably become applicable again the future.
Comment 3 Justin Sherrill 2015-03-02 14:23:11 EST
We still have not had this functionality return, so i am closing this.  This functionality is not present in 6.0 or 6.1
