Description James Bowes 2007-06-13 18:12:07 EDT
rhn-manage-channel doesn't send up the product name (params key 'os') to the
server. The server defaults to calling everything 'Red Hat Linux' in
distchannelmap, which means that the uniqueness constraint will be violated.
Comment 1 James Bowes 2007-06-19 12:41:52 EDT
To test, install a recent version of rhn-content-mgmt-internal, and run
rhn-manage-channel-internal --cvs=CSV_FILE --update --commit

where CSV_FILE could contain something like:
"Should parse","Comment","Channel Label","Channel Parent","Channel
Family","Arch","Owner","Channel name","Channel Summary","Channel
Description","redhat-release","Version","Release","GPG key URL","GPG key
ID","GPG key Fingerprint","End Of Life","Version","Product","Beta","Repository"
1,,"rhgd-i386-client-1",,"rhgd-client","ia32",,"Red Hat Global Desktop (v. 1 for
32-bit x86)","Red Hat Global Desktop (v. 1 for 32-bit x86)","Red Hat Global
Desktop (v. 1 for 32-bit x86)","rhgd-release",10,5,,,,,10,"Red Hat Global

(this is the latest rhgd mapping with version set to 10)

The command should not error out, and successfully update the mappings. You can
confirm by looking in the rhndistchannelmap table, where product = 'Red Hat
Global Desktop'
