Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 232449
rhn-applet does not change from red ! to yellow ! when security errata are applied
Last modified: 2012-06-20 12:19:36 EDT
Description of problem:
This may or may not be related to
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):
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.
Applet does not change to yellow.
Applet should change to yellow.
