Description Sean O'Keeffe 2018-04-16 11:04:30 UTC
Description of problem:

Satellite 6.3 has deprecated katello-backup and katello-restore in favor of satellite-*. This should not have been deprecated but instead symlinks created for satellite-* binaries, just like we do for satellite-installer.

Changing the name of a binary only serves to irritate customers, creating symlink allows:
- customers to take advantage of upstream community tooling
- less painless upgrades, especially considering this change is not documeneted in the release note! https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_satellite/6.3/html-single/release_notes/

Hi John,

Any thoughts on this one?

You may be able to provide some background on why deprecation was chosen over symlinks.

Opened up a MR for this and a BZ to deprecate the scripts for foreman-maintain functionality here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1569672

Comment 9 Brad Buckingham 2018-05-01 21:44:30 UTC

Does the change in scope for bug 1569672 affect this one?

Comment 10 John Mitsch 2018-05-02 13:03:34 UTC
I can change the MR to fix both this and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1569672

This was delivered in 6.5 by 1607304. Since 6.3 is now EOL I am closing this out as CURRENT_RELEASE.
