Description of problem:
Cloning of errata into clone software channels does not work.
When cloning an RH errata down to a cloned software channel, doing
it the same way I did with SS 3.4, it will not be assigned to any
channels at all after publishing, even though there were checkmarks
on the proper channels when publishing.
Trying to assign the errata to channels afterwards (Errata ->
Manage Errata -> Published -> select the errata -> Channels) does
not work either. I can check the channels I want and push the
'Update Channels' button, but in the resulting page all channels
are cleared again and on the top it says:
"Errata CLSA-2005:010 has been successfully assigned to 0 channels."
The same goes for errata which have been taken over automatically
upon software channel cloning. These errata are assigned to the
channel, but trying to change the channel association will remove
the errata from all channels.
There is a cumbersome way, however, to work around the issue:
- clone the errata
- for _each_ channel, to which the cloned errata should apply do:
Channels -> Manage Software Channels -> select the channel
to work with -> Errata -> Clone -> in the Action field select
'Merge with...' and push the 'Clone Errata' button -> push the
'update Errata' button
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Network release 3.6.0
Steps to Reproduce:
1. clone a RH errata to a custom software channel and publish it
1. select a cloned errata and try to update its channel association
Actual Results: errata will not be assigned to any channels at all
Expected Results: errata should be assigned to the selected channels
We subscribe all our machines to cloned software channels. The
structure looks as follows:
RHEL WS 3 channel
^-- cloned to: customer staging channel
^-- cloned to: customer channel
Erratas we want to clone in the same manner, the RH-errata should
be cloned to the 'staging' channels and after verification to the
final 'production' channels.
This is fixed in CVS, and should be available with the next version of
