Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 474567
Scheduling remote command works on systems without provisioning entitlement
Last modified: 2010-10-23 02:21:42 EDT
Description of problem:
I am using SSM and choosing systems both with and without provisioning entitlements. I went to SSM/Provisioning/Remote Command and scheduled a remote command. In this case, it was just "touch /tmp/marker"
When I click the Schedule Remote Command button, only the system with the provisioning entitlement shows up in the list to confirm. However, next time rhn_check runs on the system with only management and not provisioning, it does execute the remote command and /tmp/marker is created.
Note that as part of installation, all of my systems are subscribed to the Red "Hat Network Tools" child channel and I do install rhncfg, rhncfg-actions and rhncfg-client. Clients also run rhn-actions-control --enable-all as part of the installation.
It seems that even if the clients are configured for everything, the server should not allow provisioning tasks to run on systems without provisioning entitlements.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHN Satellite 5.2.0 i386
RHEL 4.7 i386
up2date -u has been run and both the OS and RHN Satellite are up to date as of 4 December 2008
Additionally, I think we should investigate whether we want to keep Remote Commands as a provisioning only feature.
Fixed in spacewalk.git by resurrecting a line that was commented out almost four years ago for bug #162627. Tested the verification steps in that bug and all appears well after bringing back this part of the commented out code.
Tested and VERIFIED on 5/7 ISO.
