Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 245969
rhn-manage-channel --create should be a single XMLRPC call
Last modified: 2017-07-05 11:13:19 EDT
When running rhn-manage-channel with a csv file, and not specifying --commit,
you will see spurious errors if:
The channel families do not exist, even though you specified --create-family
A channel in your csv is a child channel of another channel in your csv
These happen because each channel creation, and each channel family creation, is
a distinct XMLRPC call that gets rolled back at the end.
Instead, the entire operation should be a single call, so it can be rolled back
or committed together.

As you may already be aware, Red Hat is transitioning from the Red Hat Network (RHN) hosted interface to the Red Hat Subscription Management (RHSM) interface in July 2017. Red Hat has invested in and seen success from RHN for many years, and used that experience to build more robust technologies like RHSM.
If you have not yet migrated your RHN systems to RHSM or you are a Red Hat Satellite customer, please review the information from. https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management#migration.
Since we are shutting down RHN, no further actions will be taken with this bug or enhancement request. You can find additional information at RHSM product page (https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management).
