Description Jesus M. Rodriguez 2016-01-05 11:39:43 EST
[root@localhost ~]# katello-disconnected disable --all
[root@localhost ~]# katello-disconnected enable -r cf-me-5_3-for-rhel-6-files--x86_64
[root@localhost ~]# katello-disconnected configure
[root@localhost ~]# katello-disconnected sync

No errors reported after calling sync.

[root@localhost ~]# mkdir cfme
[root@localhost ~]# katello-disconnected export --repos cf-me-5_3-for-rhel-6-files--x86_64 --target cfme/

Export finishes QUICKLY which is abnormal, but no errors. Output directory only contains a listing file.

[root@localhost ~]# ls cfme/content/dist/cf-me/server/5.3/x86_64/files/

What I expected was directories containing the virt images that are contained in the repos:

[root@localhost cfme]# ls -lr cf-me-5_4-for-rhel-6-files--x86_64/

Comment 1 Jesus M. Rodriguez 2016-01-05 11:44:25 EST
My research found a few problems:

1) when talking to pulp, the ISO distributor and importer needed to be used in order for pulp to sync ISO/files/images repos.

2) the export wasn't tarring up the isos directory which caused the exported content not to contain any of the ISO/files/images that were synced by pulp.

3) the expand_export.sh script would only expand the content-export-?? files and would skip any other exported content files in the directory. This is because tar stops processing once it finds the end of file from the cat command. So while content-export-* might match all the files in the directory, only the -?? get processed first the last one has an EOF which causes tar to stop.

Comment 3 Jesus M. Rodriguez 2016-01-05 11:53:57 EST
To test follow the instructions for setting up a Disconnected Sync host:


Then ⁠section 4.3.2. Synchronizing Content, sync only a "files" repository (makes it easier to test)

# katello-disconnected disable --all
# katello-disconnected enable -r cf-me-5_4-for-rhel-6-files--x86_64
# katello-disconnected configure
# katello-disconnected sync

*) verify /var/lib/pulp/content/iso has some content in it

Once sync is complete then EXPORT the content to a temporary directory, following the instructions found here: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Satellite/6.0/html/User_Guide/Exporting_Content.html

*) verify the expand_export.sh script contains the new cat | tar commands.

run expand_export.sh

*) verify that you have .ova and .qcow2 files
