Description Mike McCune 2008-09-08 15:20:14 EDT
Once you get the Monitoring RPMs installed and try to configure monitoring you will notice on:


that the DB name shows up in the password field.  Saving this page doesn't seem to actually correct the problem and you get startup problems with Monitoring:

DBI connect('spacewalk','spacewalk',...) failed: ORA-12541: TNS:no listener (DBD ERROR: OCIServerAttach) at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/NOCpulse/NOCpulseini.pm line 60
2008-09-08 15:18:37 InstallSoftwareConfig:      !! ERROR:  connect failed: ORA-12541: TNS:no listener (DBD ERROR: OCIServerAttach)

Debug I added:
DBD: Oracle dbname: spacewalk username: spacewalk password: XE

Even after hard coding spacewalk/spacewalk@xe into the Perl code you then get:

Commited as 8655225da933934bff8cec5d8448d0bb09803fdb
and to master as f5911db27d211347454a058fe41022e1147e7f14

Funny thing is that this bug has been there for 2 years without notice.

Spacewalk has been released for some time.
