Kickstart provisioning a system registered through proxy registers it to the satellite not proxy.

Description of problem:
Provisioning a system registered through proxy registers it to the satellite.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a Prox through the satellite.
2. Register a client through proxy.
3. Create a kickstart profile.
4. Provision the client.
5. Once the kickstart finsihes, check the serverUrl in /etc/sysconfing/rhn/up2date
see that the serverUrl is of the Satellite and not the proxy's
It should be registerd to the proxy.
this is a regression - the kickstart profile rendered when kickstarting via a
RHN Proxy should render in the RHN Proxy hostname, not the Satellite. I *think*
devan or Justin *may* of already fixed this, think I remember seeing a commit on
this last week.
SVN commit r136875 maybe - by Devan... maybe..
Justin and I both have no knowledge of this, but picking this up as Partha is on
Was the proxy selected on the provisioning screen? We're unable to reproduce
this and this was the only possible cause we could come up with. If that setting
were missed when scheduling the kickstart the new OS would be registered against
the satellite and not the proxy. Using that setting both the generated kickstart
file and the serverURL after kickstart points to the proxy in our testing.
Could we get QA to verify that this is an issue if the proxy is set on
Partha will be doing some more testing tonight against newer satellite code to
I wasn't selecting RHN Proxy on the kickstart page.
I do think th text Under Select RHN Proxy is misleading though. It says
"You may choose to use an RHN Proxy to access the files necessary for kickstart:"
I understood it as to get the kickstart files use Satellite or Proxy. Since I my
client was already registered to a proxy, I expected it be registered to Proxy
after kickstart whether I chose RHN Proxy or not to acess the files.
This may be something you could cosider for a future release. May be adding
another line of text warning that the client will be registered to Satellite or
Proxy depending on your selection.
Changed the text to reflect the function of the proxy combo box.. Should be in
the next push..
Proxy 5.1.0 GA so Closed for Current Release.
