Description Max Spevack 2005-06-03 10:41:46 EDT
Description of problem:

/pub/bootstrap seems to have an extra file.  I installed a satellite at
mspevack64.rdu.redhat.com, and the /pub/bootstrap directory has:


What's up with the "client-config-overrides.txt.1" file?  It's the same as the
client-configp-overrides.txt file, so it seems like it's superfluous.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhn400 -44 ISO

How reproducible:
go to mspevack64.rdu.redhat.com/pub/boostrap or install your own

misa ping re: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=159519
misa who generates that file?
taw-hm common.rhnlib.rotatefile(...)
misa yes, but where is that called?
taw-hm if you call the generation script twice it will back up the file before
writing to it. 
taw-hm The installer will call rhn-bootstrap (IIRC). And the way rotatefile
works is that it will always generate at least 1 backup if it doesn't exist.
taw-hm regardless if the "new" files is any different.
misa sounds like NOTABUG then?
taw-hm don't know. It works as designed... not sure if we want to tweak it.
misa If I call rhn_bootstrap.py it will generate .1, but not .2, .3, .4 etc
taw-hm I will cut-n-paste this conversation into the bug
taw-hm and rhn-uncommit it.
taw-hm It will only generate .2, .3, .4 if it needs to.
misa but client-config-overrides.txt and client-config-overrides.txt.1 are identical
misa why does it create the .1 then?
taw-hm cuz... that's the way it works. You say "rotate this file". It does just
taw-hm More or less you are saying "I need a backup for this file". So, it
doesn't precisely what you ask.
taw-hm s/doesn't/does/
misa seems inconsistent to me, but I'm fine
taw-hm *shrug* seems like there needs to be some tweakage somewhere.
taw-hm Therefore I will cut-n-paste this in the back and throw it in
taw-hm s/back/bug - ugh. I can't type.
