Description of problem:
the kernel-hugemem packages are available on the RHEL3 ES channel.
This contradicts all of our product descriptions, where we state that
ES is limited to 2 CPU/8G RAM. These package should be removed from
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.login to RHN
2.go to RHEL3 ES channel
3.search for kernel
Actual Results: kernel-hugemem is available
Expected Results: should not be present
Not exactly an rhn problem.
Not exactly a compose problem either since the ES packages are
identical to the AS packages aside from redhat-release, comps, and
Reassigning to dff since he likes these types of problems.
I misread this bug the first time around.
RHEL 3 _should_ have all of the kernel packages in all variants. The
"enforcing" of SLA policies is done by the new redhat-support-check
utility in initscripts, not by witholding packages.
This is different from RHEL 2.1, where we took the approach of
witholding kernel-enterprise,kernel-summit from ES and kernel-summit
So, not a bug.
Interestingly, the bug that I originally thought this was reporting
(that the kernel-enterprise and kernel-summit packages had crept back
into the RHEL 2.1 ES, WS channels) actually does exist. *sigh*
