Description Gennadii Altukhov 2017-01-31 16:57:32 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1413788 +++

Pre-cdn-sync, we can only get content one way, which is using satellite-sync. satellite-sync can only get its content from one place, which is server.satellite.rhn_parent.

With cdn-sync, we've opened the door to getting content in *two* ways - satellite-sync (ISS), and cdn-sync (from Red Hat). I think we need to teach cdn-sync to notice when its satellite is NOT pointing to redhat.com, and either a) refuse to work in that case, or b) require a specific override option to grab content from the CDN. Otherwise, we're potentially letting the customer break their desired ISS topology.

This would be its own BZ, I think - because it's going to require some thought, and code-changes. I'm suggesting that Gennadii open a new 5.8-GA BZ for that work, while making the changes for 1) and 2) under this BZ.
