Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1022281
Configuration channels won't deploy under certain conditions when registering with activation key
Last modified: 2016-05-26 10:15:00 EDT
Description of problem:
If an activation key is to install files and deploy files from a configuration channel. It won't deploy files front conf channels if all the packages to install were already installed. If it had to install just one package, config channels will deploy normally.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an activation key
2. Add packages to install already installed and updated on the test system
3. Add a config channel with some files to deploy.
rhnreg_ks will show something like (these were my files which I had put also on the kickstart profile on an overzealous action).
Package rhncfg-5.10.55-6.el6sat.noarch already installed and latest version
Package rhncfg-actions-5.10.55-6.el6sat.noarch already installed and latest version
Package rhncfg-client-5.10.55-6.el6sat.noarch already installed and latest version
Files from config channel won't show after registration.
On the Failed actions on Satellite Server it will show
For: Schedule a config deploy for activation key scheduled by (none)
This action's status is: Failed.
This action has not yet been picked up.
This action requires the successful completion of a prior action before it can be rescheduled.
For the prerequisite (Package Install scheduled by (none))
Client execution returned "Error while executing packages action: empty transaction []" (code -1)
Expected results: Ignore the empty transaction error as it is ok and deploy files.
I forgot to add:
The system will show as suscribed to the Config channel, it is just files won't be deployed.
We have re-reviewed this bug, as part of an ongoing effort to improve Satellite/Proxy feature and bug updates, review and backlog.
We believe this bug has been fixed in the latest Satellite 5 version (5.7), so closing the bug as CURRENTRELEASE. Please feel free to re-open in case you discover any issues.
