Description Jose Plans 2006-12-01 07:18:30 EST
Description of problem:

When registering a system with kernel-older_version and kernel-newer_version,
and creating a profile after registering, if we want to install a system using
that profile -or- we remove the kernel-older_version from this system and want
to sync to reach the profile already stored, then only the latest kernel gets

It seems older versions are not used at all for comparision.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest 4.1.5, tested on 4.0.x and 4.1.5.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Steps to reproduce this bug :
1. rhnreg_ks ....
2. install new kernel 2.6.9 > the GA one.
3. check they are installed :
# rpm -qa | grep kernel\-2
4. create a profile based on this system already registered.
5. check it has the two kernels recorded.
6. remove the old kernel. and check whether we have it installed.
# rpm -e kernel-2.6.9-5.EL
# rpm -qa | grep kernel\-2
7. Update the system's profile information.
# up2date -p
 Updating package profile...
 Updating transaction history...
8. compare the system and the profile again.
8.a) under Stored Profiles -> Name of profile -> Packages -> kernel:
   Both kernels are still available.
8.b) compare the profiles now.
  under System profile -> Software -> Packages -> Profiles -> Compare...
  Select the profile name.
   Below is a comparison of the package profile of this system and the profile
selected for comparison.
   No differences.
Actual results:
   Below is a comparison of the package profile of this system and the profile
selected for comparison.
   No differences.

Expected results:
A kernel difference.

Matt, can you try and reproduce this on a 500 Satellite?  
Comment 5 Mike McCune 2007-04-12 13:47:28 EDT
If this is still broken in 500s can you re-assign to jesusr?
Comment 6 Matthew Davis 2007-05-11 15:59:25 EDT
The wording is a bit misleading.  Attaching screenshot of the output.  But
issueing the sync packages to profile commands does the 'right thing'.

wording is expected (albiet a bit odd).  Moving to ON_QA.

Looks good on Stage-verified Satellite; moving to RELEASE_PENDING.
Comment 11 Brandon Perkins 2007-06-25 23:01:10 EDT
Closed for Satellite 500 Release.

I just received a notification from engineering saying that this issue has
been fixed in the latest version of Satellite 5.0.0.
