Description of problem:
During a Satellite evaluation, one of our customers received a new Satellite certificate with an increased number of channel entitlements. Following the documentation in section 5.3 of "RHN Satellite Server 4.0: Installation Guide", I used rhn-satellite-activate to activate the Satellite.

rhn-satellite-activate did not report any errors, but the entitlement counts on /network/software/channels/entitlements.pxt did not change. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a connected Satellite with a valid certificate.
2. rhn-satellite-activate --sanity-only --rhn-cert=foo-4.cert
3. rhn-satellite-activate --rhn-cert=foo-4.cert

Actual Results:  The entitlement counts on /network/software/channels/entitlements.pxt do not change. Restarting the Satellite Server doesn't help. Only uploading the new certificate to rhn.redhat.com and running satellite-sync on the Satellite updates the entitlement counts.

Expected Results:  rhn-satellite-activate should update the entitlement counts.

Additional info:

If this also happens on a disconnected Satellite, it would be a more serious bug, as there you would not be able to update the certificate with satellite-sync.

Comment 1 Clifford Perry 2006-08-24 01:43:45 UTC
This has been resolved with the RHN 410 Satellite release. This is a duplicate
of bug 171160 â rhn-satellite-activate does not update channel entitlements. 

For disconnected Satellite, the solution would be to establish some type of
channel dump ISO directory/mount point to point Satellite sync to and then use
command syntax:

satellite-sync --mount-point=./path/to/mount --rhn-cert=/path/to/cert
