Description Dirk Gfroerer 2006-11-21 01:48:16 EST
Description of problem:

RHEL 5 Beta 2

How reproducible:
Just did one install, but probably every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 5 Beta 2.
2. Use the key for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop + Workstation + DualOS
Option (Virtualization)

Actual results:
The system is just subscribed to the "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 for
64-bit x86_64) Beta" channel on RHN.

Expected results:
I would have expected this system to also be subscribed to the child channels
"RHEL Desktop Virtualization (v. 5 for 64-bit x86_64) Beta" and "RHEL Desktop
Workstation (v. 5 for 64-bit x86_64) Beta". I'm especially concerned about not
receiving security updates in such a constellation for the packages of the two
child channels.

Additional info:

auto child channel subscription functionality was not implemented in RHN for
support of RHEL 5 beta 2.  However, the functionality will be there for RHEL 5 GA.

If you need to subscribe your beta 2 system to these channels now, please login
to the RHN web ui to subscribe them.  There is an "alter channel subscriptions"
link on the system profile details page.
Comment 2 James Slagle 2006-11-29 15:37:03 EST
Closing this bug out as won't fix, since it's filed against beta 2, and that
functionality was not present in beta 2.
