Description Michael DeHaan 2008-06-30 14:57:11 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.
Comment 3 Miroslav Suchý 2011-01-24 10:08:05 EST
Func could not go behind NAT. Jabber can.
This will probably never happen.
Comment 4 Duncan Innes 2012-11-02 05:59:12 EDT
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?
