Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 380901
SystemsAffected tab in erratum details doesn't list all affected systems
Last modified: 2007-12-10 11:15:41 EST
Sorry if this is a dup. I have some suggestions for the SystemsAffected tab for
the errata page, like so:
The text states "Below is a list of systems affected by this erratum." That is
sort of misleading, since systems that have already applied this errata are not
listed. May I suggest either:
1) Add the systems that have applied the errata to the page and list their
2) Change the text to say: "Below is a list of systems that have yet to process
this erratum." or something like that :)
If you pick #2, it would be nice to create some other sort of indication of
which systems did infact apply the errata. Maybe I am missing something in the UI.
see bug 237590.
the real bug here is that the affected systems tab of an erratum details page
has not listed all affected systems. this was apparently a taskomatic issue that
was fixed in bug 237590.
if the affected systems tab continues to be incorrect, please reopen this bug.
1 & 2 above do not make sense, because there are systems unaffected by an
erratum because they have newer package version that may not have ever
explicitly applied that erratum (they may have had a upgrade action scheduled
instead.) errata are additive throughout package versions, so version 2 of a
package will have all the errata fixes in it that occurred between versions 1 and 2.
bug 237590 was fixed in rhn 501, btw.
