Description Fotios Tsiadimos 2016-03-24 18:39:51 UTC
Description of problem:

Satellite 6.1

The patch removes the limit varchar(4096) which will be released in 6.2. Can we have also a patch for the version 6.1.

foreman=# \d ptables
                                     Table "public.ptables"
   Column   |            Type             |                      Modifiers                       
 id         | integer                     | not null default nextval('ptables_id_seq'::regclass)
 name       | character varying(255)      | not null
 layout     | character varying(4096)     | not null   <=== it has a MAX varchar() limit on the table
 created_at | timestamp without time zone | not null
 updated_at | timestamp without time zone | not null
 os_family  | character varying(255)      | 

Always, it is documented in the named foreman issues:

There is also a fix that has been committed for foreman 1.8:

Comment 1 Bryan Kearney 2016-04-05 19:31:43 UTC
Satellite 6.2 will be based of off foreman 1.11, and will contain the above fixes. Moving this bug to 6.1.z for consideration.

Comment 2 Evgeni Golov 2016-07-22 10:04:28 UTC
This looks like a dupe of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1270181?

Comment 6 Tomas Strachota 2016-07-28 12:08:45 UTC
Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/15879 from this bug

Comment 10 jcallaha 2016-09-21 14:24:12 UTC
Verified in Satellite 6.1.10. 

Created a new partition table whose layout was 5,976 characters long. No issues presented during creation/editing.
