Description Graham Biswell 2006-07-11 15:35:09 EDT
On RHN Satellite 4.06 the "inactivate kickstart" radio button is selected & the
"update profile" button selected. However, once this is configured, the
kickstart profile can still be accessed from the satellite using wget etc, so
systems can still be kickstarted using that profile.

I would expect that the satellite not serve the kickstart profile, if the
profile is inactive.

Setting the sat‑5.1.0 ? flag since the bug was under rhn500s-should.
Comment 4 Devan Goodwin 2007-10-26 14:52:37 EDT
Digging through the code and asking around the satellite team, as near as we can
tell the only place this setting is used is when querying for the default
kickstart profile to use, we won't pick one set to active. Everything else keeps

So the options are, (a) remove the checkbox as it doesn't do much of anything,
or (b) go to work on implementing 'inactive' kickstart profiles. Am I too assume
inactive just means the kickstart profile is no longer downloadable?
Comment 8 Devan Goodwin 2007-11-09 11:44:51 EST
Code was already filtering inactive profiles when displaying a list for
scheduling. Verified inactive profiles are filtered on the standard kickstart
provisioning page, as well as the virtualization kickstart page (the only two
places I'm aware of where we render such a list, please let me know if I've
missed any)

Added the clarification text.
