Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1261852
spacewalk-dobby should be (un-)installed in DB migration scenarios
Last modified: 2017-08-18 05:10:22 EDT
Description of problem:
Package spacewalk-dobby (which contains db-control utility) should be (un-)installed in DB migration scenarios. That tool is supposed to be present only on embedded DB options.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
current on the web
IMO all (?) these sections will need step with installing/uninstalling spacewalk-dobby package:
12.8.1. Migrating from an Embedded Database to a Managed Database
12.8.2. Migrating from an Embedded Database to an External PostgreSQL Database
12.8.3. Migrating from an Embedded Database to an External Oracle Database
12.8.4. Migrating from a Managed Database to an Embedded Database
12.8.5. Migrating from an External PostgreSQL Database to an Embedded Database
12.8.6. Migrating from an External Oracle Database to an Embedded Database
For example here:
there should be step "yum install -y spacewalk-dobby". I have done this after whole process when testing this and `db-control` seems to be working now. IMO it should be OK to add it to step 7 where we are installing all the required packages.
And for example in:
new step should be created which would have `yum remove -y spacewalk-dobby`.
Hello Jan. Could you please "ACK" this request? Also once this is done, whole procedure (all of them) might need some QA check.
I agree, step with spacewalk-dobby package makes sense. db-control is supported for Embeddded and Managed DB. In each scenario we are working with Embedded DB, even if migrating from/to Managed DB we need to install/uninstall on Satellite system.
Moving to 'NEW' and the default assignee to be triaged as the schedule allows.
Merged the request and moving this bug to verified.
The amended Satellite 5.8 Installation Guide has been republished to the Customer Portal .
I will request the Satellite 5.7 Installation Guide also be republished.
Thank you for the needinfo request, and my apologies for not seeing it sooner.
These changes have now been published, so I am cancelling the needinfo request and moving the bug to CLOSED.
