Description Carl Speare 2007-06-05 18:58:58 UTC
Description of problem:
RHN Satellite does not properly support Fujitsu-based (sun4us) SPARC64-V
processors. (Examples include the entire series of Fujitsu PrimePower servers.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHN Satellite 4.2.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rhnreg_ks --serverUrl=http://<redacted>/XMLRPC --activationkey=<redacted>
2. Error message as below is produced.
Actual results:
Unsupported server architecture error is returned, despite the fact that a
Fujitsu Solaris system is effectively no different than a Sun Solaris system.

Expected results:
Valid registration with the Satellite server.

Additional info:

bash-2.05# uname -m
bash-2.05# rhnreg_ks --serverUrl=http://<redacted>/XMLRPC

Error Message:
    Architecture `sparc-sun4us-solaris' is not supported
Error Class Code: 24
Error Class Info: Unsupported server architecture.

Comment 1 Clifford Perry 2007-06-06 01:17:31 UTC
 currently the Solaris support with Satellite is for hardware types:

Any Solaris system installed on a hardware platform not of the above will
currently not work.

I have placed this bug under a tracker to triage for the next major product
release, beyond the Satellite 5.0 release. 


Comment 2 Carl Speare 2007-07-08 14:55:08 UTC
We did manage to modify the python code to fake a sun4u (instead of sun4us)
arch, and we even successfully imported a patch cluster and deployed it to a system.
