Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1480456
Upgrade fails with Validation failed: Providers is invalid
Last modified: 2017-09-01 11:22:27 EDT
A customer is hitting "ActiveRecord::RecordInvalid: Validation failed: Providers is invalid" during "db/seeds.d/102-organizations.rb". Futher investigation reveals that create_anonymous_provider is called when there is already anonymous provider present. They had anonymous but not redhat, perhaps they run into issues during migration or script during their upgrade.
We don't know how this happened, but this is not important. What's important that the 102-organizations.rb seed script is supposed to be idempotent, there is a big banner at the top, but these lines are definitely not idempotent. My patch will fix that.
Patch upstream is small (two lines in seed script) therefore I suggest to backport this into 6.2 for better upgrade experience. Setting high severity as this is an upgrade issue.
Upstream bug assigned to firstname.lastname@example.org
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/20558 has been resolved.
