Description Candace Sheremeta 2017-08-01 16:40:40 EDT
Description of problem:
Many customers have been running into the problem where, after upgrading from Satellite 5.6 or 5.7 to Satellite 5.8, running a full cdn-sync shows there is nothing to do as no channels are synced, and running # cdn-sync -l shows no channels synced (nothing marked with "p").

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a Sat 5.6 or 5.7 built with channels synced
2. Upgrade to Satellite 5.8
3. Run cdn-sync or cdn-sync -l

Actual results:
Output shows no channels synced

Expected results:
Channels that were synced prior to upgrade should be listed/synced

Additional info:
Comment 1 Candace Sheremeta 2017-08-01 16:42:14 EDT
Forgot to mention: syncing the channels individually with # cdn-sync -c <channel-label> works and does get the channels to show up when running # cdn-sync -l or a full # cdn-sync
Comment 3 Jan Dobes 2017-08-08 05:32:03 EDT
This is caused by change in spacewalk.git(master):


Basically it sees only channels with some CDN repositories already attached - after upgrade there are none, this needs to be enhanced.
Comment 4 Jan Dobes 2017-08-14 08:11:38 EDT
fixed in spacewalk.git(master):


It now adds all null-org channels and all custom-org channels with associated null-org repositories to synced_channels set. Running cdn-sync without parameters will now try to sync channels which were previously ignored (previously, only channels synced at least once manually were attempted) - however, it's possible this sync will fail for some channels if there is something missing for them (error in channel mapping, entitlement error etc.).
Comment 7 Patrik Segedy 2017-09-13 10:31:39 EDT
Steps to verify:
1. Install Satellite 5.6
2. Sync channels rhel-x86_64-server-7 and rhn-tools-rhel-x86_64-server-7 from dump
3. Upgrade to Satellite 5.8
4. With old package cdn-sync -l shows no channels that were previously imported/synced
# cdn-sync -l | egrep "p\ "
08:40:22 p = previously imported/synced channel

5. Update to spacewalk-backend-2.5.3-152.el6sat.noarch.rpm and now cdn-sync -l works as expected
# cdn-sync -l | egrep "p\ "
08:46:00 p = previously imported/synced channel
08:46:00     p rhel-x86_64-server-7                                        ? packages      (?B)
08:46:00     p rhn-tools-rhel-x86_64-server-7                              ? packages      (?B)

6. Both channels were successfully synced using cdn-sync
# cdn-sync --no-packages --no-errata --no-kickstarts
