Comment 3 wes hayutin 2009-04-02 13:02:43 EDT

1. verify remote command works first.
2. schedule a simple remote command, rhn_check (something like  ls -la )

3. schedule package install of zsh w/ remote command ( ls -la)
4. rhn_check

script fails, package installation fails..

Can you please clarify how I should achieve the "use the webui to install zsh and schedule a remote command before the package is installed.." step of the test plan?

I was able to schedule package installation, scheduled as soon as possible. I was able to schedule remote command execution. I set the remote command execution "in the past" but when I run rhn_check -vv, the package installation is run first, then the command execution. The time that I set is clearly taken to mean the limit before which the event is not considered, but it does not enforce the ordering.

So, how do i schedule the remote command before the package installation?
Comment 6 wes hayutin 2009-09-08 08:44:11 EDT
when installing a package you have an option to run a remote command and install.

Can you point me to where exactly I find the option? I go from system's overview page to Software -> Packages -> Install, I check the checkbox next to the package and click Install Selected Packages. On the next page I click Confirm. The only additional option I can see is Schedule action as soon as possible or Schedule action for no sooner than: <date selection>.
