Description Preethi Thomas 2008-10-23 13:39:52 EDT
Description of problem:

9. Enable (or re-enable) monitoring and/or push functionality:

Should be changed to say If you had monitoring enabled before the the upgrade, do step 9 or else continue

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
satellite 5.2


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the rhn-upgrade package
2. cat /etc/sysconfig/rhn/satellite-upgrade/rhn-satellite-5-upgrade-scenario-1b.txt 
Actual results:

 Running  /usr/bin/perl rhn-enable-monitoring.pl --enable-scout fails on upgrade from 5.1 which did not have monitoring enabled.
[root@fjs-0-20 satellite-upgrade]#  /usr/bin/perl rhn-enable-monitoring.pl --enable-scout
Setting up Monitoring backend
2008-10-23 13:27:52 Monitoring: Debug level = 0
2008-10-23 13:27:52 Monitoring: Switches: install
2008-10-23 13:27:52 Monitoring: Installing Monitoring for SysV startup in runlevels 2,3,5, start=84, stop=16
RHN::Exception: Attempt to get satellite_org_id on database with more than one org
  RHN::DB::SatInstall /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/RHN/DB/SatInstall.pm 373 RHN::Exception::throw
  main rhn-enable-monitoring.pl 57 RHN::DB::SatInstall::get_satellite_org_id

Expected results:
The documentation should clearly state that do step 9 only if you had monitoring  enabled pre upgrade.

Comment 3 Jeff Browning 2009-06-16 00:45:24 EDT

Note that the step in question is now Step 13, not 9.
Comment 4 Jan Pazdziora 2009-08-13 06:19:49 EDT
In rhn-upgrade-, the rhn-satellite-5-upgrade-scenario-1b.txt says

12. Enable (or re-enable) monitoring and/or push functionality:

   If you would like to enable monitoring:
      # NOTE: You should attempt to enable monitoring only if your satellite
      #       installation you are upgrading from had monitoring enabled.
      # NOTE: the --enable-scout option will enable the monitoring scout on
      #       your RHN Satellite
      /usr/share/spacewalk/setup/upgrade/rhn-enable-monitoring.pl --enable-scout

Note that the step in question is now Step 12, not 9, neither 13.
