Description Beth Nackashi 2007-03-15 11:58:42 EDT
Description of problem:
This may or may not be related to
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=232097.

The specific problem here is that my client system has applicable security
errata, so the rhn-applet is blinking red.  After I applied all the security
errata using the UI and ran rhn_check, the rhn-applet is still blinking red. 
Since the rhnsd interval is 2 minutes, shouldn't the applet change to yellow by now?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhn-applet-2.1.25-22
rhnlib-2.1.1-3.el4

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  PXE a client to RHEL4 U2 or U3.
2.  Register the client to webqa.
3.  Install the latest rhnlib and rhn-applet and up2date and related stuff.
4.  ssh -Y to the client and run rhn-applet-gui &.
5.  Applet throbber should blink red.
6.  Using the UI, apply all the security-related errata to the client.  This has
to be done manually unfortunately as the UI does not currently offer a way to
"select and apply all security errata".  The security errata have the gold
padlock next to them.
7.  Set the rhnsd interval (/etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhnsd) to 2 min.
8.  Restart rhnsd.
  
Actual results:
Applet does not change to yellow.

Expected results:
Applet should change to yellow.
