Comment 1 Miroslav Suchý 2008-10-23 10:01:22 EDT
This happens in 5.1 as well. Sat5.2.0 is only RHEL5 and Oracle 10g and regression. Since this is not regression, I'm not going to fix in sat 5.2

And since in 5.3 will be WebUI installer replaced with CLI installer and WEBUI installer will be in maintance, and since this bug has very low impact and is *very* hard to fix... I'm setting the bug WONTFIX.
Comment 2 Preethi Thomas 2008-10-27 14:22:42 EDT
I think this needs to be documented. May be displaying a message to run rhn_check after deactivating the satellite should work.  reopening and aligning to sat 5.3 triage.
Comment 3 Brandon Perkins 2008-10-30 11:44:39 EDT
Cliff and I agree with both Comment #1 and Comment #2.  We suggest to have a simple solution, let's just put up a blue dialog after deactivate proxy that says something along the lines of: "Proxy deactivation scheduled, please run rhn_check on the proxy server to complete this process."

I don't think we want to add more logic to the WebUI activation as we are deprecating it.
