Description Pavel Moravec 2016-04-29 10:59:24 UTC
Description of problem:
Updating SSL certificates on Satellite/Capsule, katello-ca-consumer-latest package needs to be reinstalled on Content Hosts. Post-install script of the package should automatically restart goferd service to let it reload new certificates. But this works only on RHEL[5-6], since:

rpm2cpio /var/www/html/pub/katello-ca-consumer-latest.noarch.rpm | cpio -iv --to-stdout

# restart goferd if it is installed and running
[ -f /etc/init.d/goferd ] && \
  service goferd status >/dev/null && \
  service goferd restart >/dev/null 2&>1

exit 0

# vim:sw=2:ts=2:et:
30 blocks

RHEL7 does not have init scripts :-/

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Sat6.2 Beta Snap 9.3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
on RHEL7:
1. ps aux | grep gofer
2. yum reinstall http://satellite.example.com/pub/katello-ca-consumer-latest.noarch.rpm -y
3. ps aux | grep gofer

Actual results:
In 3., same goferd process with same PID is running

Expected results:
In 3., goferd should be restarted

Additional info:
Same bug is in 6.1 and I think *this* caused lot of redundant customer concerns "why katello agent isnt connected?" resolved by manual goferd restart..

Since change is trivial and has impact to approx. 1/3 of customers (anybody who updates certs), asking for blocker?
