Description Máirín Duffy 2007-09-25 17:17:00 EDT
from "section Preparing Channel Content ISOs"

"After logging in, click Channels in the top navigation bar and then the name of
the channel for your version of RHN Satellite Server."

This could be read two ways:

(1) The correct 'go to the satellite server channel page'
(2) The incorrect but quite plausible 'go to the channel page for the channel
that you're interested in and want to load into your sat'

A very time-costly mistake to make, to read it in the #2 sense!

Suggested rewording:

"After logging in, click Channels in the top navigation bar. Then, click on the
RHN Satellite Server channel, making sure to select the Satellite channel that
corresponds to your version of Satellite."

Here's a direct link to the relevant section in the hosted copy of the doc.

Thanks Mizmo. Your suggested sentence breaks up the process and makes it clearer.
It's available for viewing in the latest build of the Satellite 5.1.0
Installation Guide:

dont see this section in the docs.. Preparing Channel Content ISOs

fails qa
Comment 4 John Ha 2008-02-13 18:54:41 EST
Moving all FAILS_QA as ON_QA for the next build of RHN 5.1.0 ISO coming real
soon now and should have the latest build of the docs.
Comment 5 wes hayutin 2008-02-18 09:49:44 EST
Not sure why we're sending these back and forth..
I cant verify any bug until its in the iso..

fails qa..

still not in the iso.
Comment 6 John Ha 2008-02-18 17:05:05 EST
I don't think I understand how this works, then :( If it's not on the ISO, how
does Mizmo's fix show up on this Satellite test box?


I was told that this machine gets wiped and reinstalled the latest image
Comment 7 John Ha 2008-02-21 13:52:36 EST
Is the fix for this one still missing from the ISO? Is there a QA or test box
that has the latest that I could take a look at to see if the HTML builds are
recent on the newest ISO?

Comment 8 John Ha 2008-02-22 04:24:57 EST
Okay, I've confirmed it here now:


So, the fix is in the latest, too. Whew, I was getting worried!

Setting this back to MODIFIED.
