rhn-satellite-export fails with Error: OverflowError caught!
Last modified: 2010-10-22 23:17:27 EDT
Description of problem:
When running rhn-satellite-export against a large channel with the
--make-iso=dvd option, it fails with "Error: OverflowError caught!"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Sync the rhel-x86_64-server-5 channel
2. Run /usr/bin/rhn-satellite-exporter -crhel-x86_64-server-5
isos are created but program dies with error
This is a bug in the /usr/share/rhn/satellite_tools/intersat_sync/iss.py file.
Line 1096 reads:
if self.options.make_isos != "dvds":
And should read
if self.options.make_isos != "dvd":
Because the option being passed in is 'dvd' not 'dvds'
Personally, I think this is more of a band-aid for the bigger picture of why the
md5sum is failing for the dvd isos. Maybe this should be rewritten to not fail.
Verified. Two ISOs created from the RHEL5 i386 server channel. No errors.
Moving to RELEASE_PENDING.
5.1.1 Satellite is now GA, bugs Closed for Current Release.
