add force flag to activation to force lowering entitlements
Last modified: 2009-07-30 15:58:11 EDT
Description of problem:
Need a new --force or a cfg option for activation to lower satellite
entitlements from new cert. This would clear up all the entitlements from the
non-base orgs and default the base-org to the cert.
we'll reconsider this for sat-5.2.. no plan to add force flag now for activation
This needs to be re-reviewed for a valid use case for the implementation before starting work. We don't want to do it just because we feel like its missing. That is, we don't want to address a percieved issue and we want to know that it is in fact a real issue.
Discussed with wes and we don't think this is a necessary change at this point. We can default this reset in ui the way we do it now by having the user flip the flag in rhn.conf. Its better we dont give such a destructive option through a simple command line flag. Another thing, this would not be in any event log if done from the backend.. so it ends up being untraceable in worst case scenario other than some log entries..
Closing this. Feel free to reopen if you have any other thoughts.
