Description Sayan Das 2022-09-16 19:02:47 UTC
Description of problem:

For any reason if the artifacts representing one or more rpms from a repo, went missing from inside /var/lib/pulp filesystem of satellite, we do have UI and hammer options to run Verify Checksum and get them back but if the same thing happens for Capsule's pulp, there is no easy or normal way present to download them back ( without manually using the pulp3 api ).

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

Red Hat Satellite\Capsule 6.12

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce and Actual Results:

1. Install a Satellite and Capsule 6.12

2. Import a manifest in Satellite and Set the download policy of the capsule to immediate.

3. Enable the following repository "Red Hat Satellite Tools 6.10 for RHEL 8 x86_64 RPMs" and sync it with immediate download policy

4. Register a RHEL 8 system with Capsule, enable "Red Hat Satellite Tools 6.10 for RHEL 8 x86_64 RPMs" on that system and install katello-host-tools package.

5. Come back to Capsule and identify the artifact name of the katello-host-tools package

# echo "select ca.pulp_id, ca.file, cca.relative_path from core_artifact ca LEFT JOIN core_contentartifact cca on cca.artifact_id = ca.pulp_id where cca.relative_path = 'katello-host-tools-3.5.4-1.el8sat.noarch.rpm';" | su - postgres -c "psql pulpcore"
               pulp_id                |                                    file                                    |                relative_path                 
 9d34ecf3-c89a-49f2-95b4-e1b6b6cc80d4 | artifact/bb/592c8ada2ee35346cbccebb3df7916f512e39995712389aa05a3d6ed35c60a | katello-host-tools-3.5.4-1.el8sat.noarch.rpm
(1 row)

6. Check the artifact on the filesystem and then delete it from /var/lib/pulp of Capsule

# file /var/lib/pulp/media/artifact/bb/592c8ada2ee35346cbccebb3df7916f512e39995712389aa05a3d6ed35c60a
/var/lib/pulp/media/artifact/bb/592c8ada2ee35346cbccebb3df7916f512e39995712389aa05a3d6ed35c60a: RPM v3.0 bin noarch katello-host-tools-3.5.4-1.el8sat

# sha256sum /var/lib/pulp/media/artifact/bb/592c8ada2ee35346cbccebb3df7916f512e39995712389aa05a3d6ed35c60a
bb592c8ada2ee35346cbccebb3df7916f512e39995712389aa05a3d6ed35c60a  /var/lib/pulp/media/artifact/bb/592c8ada2ee35346cbccebb3df7916f512e39995712389aa05a3d6ed35c60a

# rm -f /var/lib/pulp/media/artifact/bb/592c8ada2ee35346cbccebb3df7916f512e39995712389aa05a3d6ed35c60a

7. Re-sync the Capsule in any possible manner i.e. Optimized Sync\Complete Sync and everything will be successful but nothing downloads back the package on the capsule.

# file /var/lib/pulp/media/artifact/bb/592c8ada2ee35346cbccebb3df7916f512e39995712389aa05a3d6ed35c60a
/var/lib/pulp/media/artifact/bb/592c8ada2ee35346cbccebb3df7916f512e39995712389aa05a3d6ed35c60a: cannot open (No such file or directory) 

8. Try yum command on the client system to re-install the package , hoping pulp will do some magic but that is not the case:

# yum reinstall katello-host-tools -y

[MIRROR] katello-host-tools-3.5.4-1.el8sat.noarch.rpm: Status code: 502 for https://capsule612.test.lan/pulp/content/RedHat/Library/RHEL8/content/dist/layered/rhel8/x86_64/sat-tools/6.10/os/Packages/k/katello-host-tools-3.5.4-1.el8sat.noarch.rpm (IP:

From pulp logs of capsule:

Jan 21 18:05:24 capsule612 pulpcore-content: FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/var/lib/pulp/media/artifact/bb/592c8ada2ee35346cbccebb3df7916f512e39995712389aa05a3d6ed35c60a'

Manual Workaround: ( To be executed on satelllite by targeting the Capsule's Pulp API )

# curl -s --cert /etc/pki/katello/certs/pulp-client.crt --key /etc/pki/katello/private/pulp-client.key -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST | json_reformat
    "task": "/pulp/api/v3/tasks/36d19d67-6472-410b-ac0c-f87880b23006/"

It runs on all artifacts so need to wait and then monitor the status of the task and upon completion it looks like this:

# curl -s --cert /etc/pki/katello/certs/pulp-client.crt --key /etc/pki/katello/private/pulp-client.key | jq .progress_reports

    "message": "Identify missing units",
    "code": "repair.missing",
    "state": "completed",
    "total": null,
    "done": 1,        --------------> Downloaded the missing unit
    "suffix": null
    "message": "Identify corrupted units",
    "code": "repair.corrupted",
    "state": "completed",
    "total": null,
    "done": 0,
    "suffix": null
    "message": "Repair corrupted units",
    "code": "repair.repaired",
    "state": "completed",
    "total": null,
    "done": 1,
    "suffix": null


*  Sat UI -->  Infrastructure --> Capsules --> Click open the capsule --> Click on "Synchronize" dropdown and here We should have a "Verify Content Checksum" option present as well that will allow running the repair api on capsule's pulp content.

*  The same option should be made available to execute via "hammer capsule content synchronize" as well.

Feel free to consider it as BUG or RFE as applicable
