Description mike maurer 2003-09-09 19:44:22 UTC
Description of problem:  After successfully updating the client w/SSL we ran 
up2date (twice now, also did a package upgrade for the kernel only since 
iptables won't update until the kernel is upgraded) and the redhat.com website 
shows up2date ran and successfully, installing kernel 2.4.20-20.7, yet the 
server still only shows one kernel installed (kernel-2.4.18-3) after doing the 
rpm -q kernel command.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):  RH 7.3

How reproducible:  every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. explained above
Actual results:  explained above

Expected results:  explained above

Comment 1 Chip Turner 2003-09-09 19:47:37 UTC
does the problem go away when you run 'up2date -p' ?

Comment 2 mike maurer 2003-09-09 19:54:23 UTC
Tried running up2date -p already, no luck.  The account is kodak_lbp and the 
servername is smtp.loomis-associates if this helps. 

Comment 3 mike maurer 2003-09-09 20:01:34 UTC
smtp.loomis-associates.com that is...

Comment 4 Josef Komenda 2003-09-09 20:18:41 UTC
Please provide the output of: 

rpm -qa | grep up2date
rpm -qa | grep kernel
cat /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid | grep ID

Comment 5 mike maurer 2003-09-09 20:50:41 UTC
rpm -qa | grep up2date
command output > up2date-2.8.40-3.7.3

rpm -qa | grep kernel
command output > kernel-2.4.18-3

cat /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid | grep ID
command output > <value><string>ID-1002000859</string></value>

Comment 6 Josef Komenda 2003-09-09 21:17:38 UTC
How about: 
grep -e Skip /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date

Comment 7 mike maurer 2003-09-09 21:31:10 UTC
[root@smtp root]# grep -e Skip /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date
removeSkipList[comment]=A list of package names, optionally including wildcards 
that up2date will not remove
pkgSkipList[comment]=A list of package names, optionally including wildcards, 
to skip
fileSkipList[comment]=A list of file names, optionally including wildcards, to 
[root@smtp root]#

Comment 8 Josef Komenda 2003-09-09 22:00:17 UTC
Kernel is in the skip list by default - you can get it to install by running:
    up2date --configure 

and deleting kernel* from the skip list, or by running the up2date gui client.
