Description of problem:
It's possible to register a satellite server or any rhel box multiple times.
I figured subscription-manager would have corrected this, so it's also possible that a user may delete a validate satellite server in trying to clean up.
What I notice is that customer portal satellite server loses the manifest on delete of the satellite from within customer portal.
Then when you go into the Satellite and click referesh manifest you'll get an error.
Unless someone knows that the accidentally delete happened in the customer portal they may not ever refresh manifest.
So the request here is to have some auto health checks in place, like validate manifest is not dead, if it is then send appropriate emails.
The use case here is that when a manifest dies it's assumed that your schedules syncs will die to, but why not get the notification sooner that the manifest has died versus having to debug why syncs are failing.
There could be other use cases for general health check notifications.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fairly easy workaround of just deleting the manifest in UI.
Then going into customer portal and generating a new manifest and uploading that back into the Satellite6 server.
Since this issue was entered in Red Hat Bugzilla, the release flag has been
set to ? to ensure that it is properly evaluated for this release.
Per 6.3 planning, moving out non acked bugs to the backlog
Thank you for your interest in Satellite 6. We have evaluated this feature request, and we do not expect this to be implemented in product in the forseeable future. We are therefore closing this out as WONTFIX. If you have any concerns about this, please feel free to contact Rich Jerrido or Bryan Kearney. Thank you.
