Description Jan Pazdziora 2008-08-29 03:46:37 EDT
Description of problem:

A common enterprise environment will have a centralised user identity service. Thus users and groups that the Spacewalk packages need may well already exist in the centralised auth database. Some Spacewalk packages do not take this schenario into account.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install Spacewalk on a host that is configured to use a centralised authentication service where the oracle, apache, tomcat5, nocpulse, and nocops users and their groups already exist.
2. Run spacewalk-setup.

Actual results:

Error message like "The user 'apache' must be locally defined.

Expected results:

No error during package installation nor during spacewalk-setup.

Additional info:

This is related to Satellite bug 391771.

Comment 3 Jan Pazdziora 2008-11-10 08:52:45 EST
I'm pretty sure the code got to Spacewalk 0.3's packages, in one form or another (there were more changes to the code later on). Moving ON_QA.

Spacewalk has been released for some time.
