Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 427989
[RFE] download software for inactive system
Last modified: 2017-07-05 11:15:08 EDT
We have some systems with Update entitlement registered in Red Hat network. They
are currently marked as inactive in the Systems list, because they aren't
checking in with Red Hat Network.
Now, I won't go into details about the reasons for this right here, but it's
what I expect, and the way I want it; I don't really want to use the Red Hat
Network daemon on the host in question. What I do want however, is to download
software for "manual install" via the web interface, but there seems to be no
way I can do this. The list of ISO downloads return contains only Red Hat 9,
package or errata searches never return anything, and I'm not allowed to
subscribe to any channels.
So I have concluded that I'm not actually allowed to download anything from the
web site unless the hosts are active. I think this is a bug. Web download should
Just Work, regardless of the network daemon setup etc.
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). If you have further questions, please contact support (https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management#support).
