SSM error changing base channel to "System Default Base Channel"
Last modified: 2009-03-03 11:24:09 EST
Description of problem:
A null pointer exception is thrown in the logs when I attempt to make the change.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Spacewalk 0.5, local build as of Feb 11
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Selected one system into the SSM
2. Clicked Channels -> Base Channel
3. In the "Desired Base Channel" list, I selected "System Default Base Channel"
4. When I hit confirm, I get an ISE
ISE in the UI. Null pointer exception in the logs:
Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException

I'm not fully sure. It's already subscribed to the default channel, so I'm expecting either a confirmation that it was successful or a message that no changes were made.
This might be related to BZ 420601.
Another note, this only seems to happen if it is already subscribed to the default channel and I select to subscribe to the default channel. I was able to change to a user created channel and then back to the default channel successfully.
It looks like this had something to do with the way I syncced my channels. I tried on a 5.3 build that was syncced properly and I don't see the issue.
