RHN Proxy installation deploys squid in a failed state
Last modified: 2008-02-08 07:48:40 EST
Description of problem:
RHN Proxy installation deploys squid in a failed state. To further compound the
problem, /etc/init.d/squid status reports squid to be running when it is not.
This appears to be caused by the fact that squid is unable to resolve its
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This has been shown on 3 seperate servers now. All servers are able to resolve
their FQDN from their IP and their IP from their FQDN.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHN Proxy from RHN Satellite
2. run /etc/init.d/squid status (this will claim squid is running)
3. Check /var/log/squid/squid.out (this will show No running copy)
Squid process is running, but cannot function as it is unable to resolve its
Squid should function correctly after RHN Proxy installation
To resolve this problem, visible_hostname <servername> needs to be added to
This should be done at installation time, as RHN Satellite captures this
information during the installation process.
