Description John Sefler 2016-10-31 15:04:09 UTC
Description of problem:
When specifying the new --remove-rhn-packages option from RFE Bug 1185914 together with the --keep option, the tool should throw an EX_USAGE (exit code 64) error with a message like "The --remove-rhn-packages and --keep options cannot be used together."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@jsefler-rhel6 ~]# rpm -q subscription-manager-migration

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
[root@jsefler-rhel6 ~]# rhn-migrate-classic-to-rhsm --remove-rhn-packages --keep
Destination username: testuser1
Destination password: 
Org: ^C
User interrupted process.
[root@jsefler-rhel6 ~]# 

Actual results:
above - notice that I aborted with Ctrl-C once the tool started promting me for credentials

Expected results:
[root@jsefler-rhel6 ~]# rhn-migrate-classic-to-rhsm --remove-rhn-packages --keep
The --remove-rhn-packages and --keep options cannot be used together.
[root@jsefler-rhel6 ~]# echo $?

Additional info:
See commit 270f2a3e5f7d55b69a6f98c160d38362961b3059 Bug 1217835 for a model example of throwing an EX_USAGE error due to conflicting rhn-migrate-classic-to-rhsmoptions.
