(RFE) Replace OSAD with Func
Last modified: 2012-11-02 05:59:12 EDT
Func provides nearly all of the features of OSAD, plus the ability to be easily
expanded. This is a RFE to investigate what is needed to replace OSAD with
Func so that every Satellite installed node can be addressed via Func.
There is a corresponding Func Tracker here:
https://fedorahosted.org/func/ticket/38 that has details
Already talked about this some with pradeep, we need to see about finishing Func
delegation support to support proxy/network details now, ssalesvan is working on
some of this.
Mass-moving to space13.
Func could not go behind NAT. Jabber can.
This will probably never happen.
Can I just ask: Will this probably never happen, or definitely never happen?
OSAD is still viewed as one of the weaker links in Spacewalk/Satellite and improving/replacing it should be seen as a clear target.
Just wondering. If it's not possible to use Func, are there alternatives?
