Description Jason Connor 2005-12-06 23:20:57 UTC
This support is already there. We need to verify that it works. The biggest pain
in all this will be setting up a test environment. I'll work with Akamai to get
access to test servers.

Comment 1 Pradeep Kilambi 2006-04-12 15:49:13 UTC
This capability has been added in the rhnlib module which acts as a gateway
between the client(up2date/satsync) and hosted/akamai edge-nwk.

Basically the rpclib is modified such that the fail-over and redirect are
handled at the same place.  

Implemented Flow:
- when you run up2date it starts with POST and GET request for login and pkg hdr
 info respectively

- for every package a GET request is sent to hosted .
- hosted redirects with 302 back to the client with akamai url
- client sends a request to akamaized url for pkg.
- we fill the headers with pkg info and redirect paths for akamai use in case of
failure or redirect. 
- if package avaiable:
     downlods it
- elif 4xx or 5xx from akamai:
     #send the request back to hosted, set no-redirect flag (avoid loops)
     #download pkg 
- elif 302 from akamai:
     #sends a 302 back to the redirect url and if hosted downloads the pkg.

summary changed to properly reflect what package got modified

Comment 4 Fanny Augustin 2006-05-02 20:46:05 UTC
It was decided that the client portion of the ISO Pkg Redirect should be deliver
with with the RHN-RHEL3.8 and RHN-RHEL4.4 update agent release

Comment 5 Fanny Augustin 2006-05-02 20:48:12 UTC
RHN Dev and RHN QA have agreed to develop and test this bug

Comment 7 Bret McMillan 2006-05-03 21:12:46 UTC
Moving component to RHEL for errata reasons.  Note that the server side bits for
302 are not going into 410, they will be turned on at a later point.  Testing
right now should be regression testing.
