Satellite sync will need to handle http 302 redirect requests if issued by the
Comment 1 Pradeep Kilambi 2006-04-12 11:44:58 EDT
Satellite-sync basically uses the same code changes applicable to up2date.
rhnlib code is shared by satsync and up2date.

- when you run satellite-sync it starts with downloading all the meta info and
other missing pkg and deps.

- 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 akamai for pkg.
- if package avaiable:
     downlod 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.
 this is done for every package thats synced to a particular channel.

OK. With BZ 558750 fixed everything works. The trouble is that BZ 558750 has to go live before we enable CDN.
Once Errata for BZ 558750 will be released (hopefully RHEL5.5) then we can just bump up xml_dump_version to 3.4 and it will work.

Affected files with xml_dump_version are:

According to communication with jbowes there is difference in behaviour as described originaly by prad:
- elif 4xx or 5xx from akamai:
     #send the request back to hosted, set no-redirect flag (avoid loops)
     #download pkg 
Current behaviour is hit again akamai.

When I try CDN with fixed rhnlib, it works without problem. Flipping to MODIFIED.
Comment 11 Miroslav Suchý 2010-03-30 10:29:39 EDT
we should only bump up xml_dump_version everything else should be ok
