Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 427989
[RFE] download software for inactive system
Last modified: 2010-10-06 10:39:14 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.
