Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 177739
Constantly showing pending updates when there aren't any.
Last modified: 2008-10-15 11:43:29 EDT
Description of problem:
We are very frequently getting machines (often lots of them at once) showing up
with a "pending actions" icon in the RHN overview screens. Clicking on the icon
to view the pending events reveals "no events pending".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every week or two.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look at your system overview in RHN
2. many machines have a "clock" (pending update) icon.
3. click the icon, view "no updates pending" on resulting screen.
lots of incorrect "pending update" icons.
machines listed with correct state.
The only way I've found to clear this is to log into every affected machine and
run up2date -p.
I reported this via email several months ago (with screenshots) via our support
rep but it still hasn't been fixed and it seems to be getting worse (dozens of
machines affected at a time now instead of only a few) and I don't see a bug
filed on it.
Logging as high because it's damn annoying and makes it hard to get an accurate
assessment of your system states (because if it's pending you can't tell if it's
up to date or not).
