Description William Sizemore 2007-08-09 01:07:35 EDT
Description of problem:
After cloning one of the "RHEL" channels (the ones created when you
'satellite-sync'), even if you choose "Current State of the Channel" to include
cloning all current errata, all errata still show up under "Clone Errata" with a
status of "Not Cloned".  However, the packages for all of the errata are
included in the newly cloned channel.

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

How reproducible:
I have produced this with three satellite server installs (two additional test
installs after finding the problem at a client site).      

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Clone one of the RHEL channels.
2.  Choose "Current State".
3.  After the clone is finished, click on Errata, then Clone Errata.
4.  No errata should be listed (since all errata should have been cloned along
with the channel) - but all errata are listed.
Actual results:
All errata are showing up under "Clone Errata", with "Already Cloned" status of NO.

Expected results:
All errata should have a status of "YES" - and not show up on the Clone Errata
page (unless the "Show cloned errata" box is checked)

Is the problem still present on Satellite 5.4?

Please note that the errata cloning process is asynchronous so it may take a while before the operation finishes even if the HTTP requests already returns to your browser.

Also, fixing the Component -- this is not Configuration Management issue.
Comment 3 Clifford Perry 2014-05-09 06:08:22 EDT
We have not addressed this specific bug in almost 7 years. Closing out as wontfix to clear from backlog. Needinfo for over 2 years.

Please re-open if you disagree and wish further review.
