Description Steve Salevan 2009-03-24 15:47:08 EDT
Description of problem:
If a user initiates a kickstart on a 530 Satellite, the WebUI will not report status past the "Reboot System" step, though the kickstart will proceed, downloading packages and the like.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a kickstart profile
2. Kickstart a system with the WebUI, using this profile
3. Watch the session status
Actual results:
Session status does not proceed past "Reboot System" step, though the kickstart process proceeds to steps which produce status appropriately

Expected results:
Session status advances to appropriate steps upon new status updates from anaconda

Additional info:
Comment 2 Steve Salevan 2009-03-25 16:54:15 EDT
Upon further testing, it appears that the kickstart process itself does not proceed, receiving 404 errors when anaconda attempts to retrieve the KS file and packages.  Furthermore, errors appear in catalina.out, which has been attached.

mmccune believes that these additional problems are all part of the issue initially reported, so I'm aligning this bug to sat530-qa-blockers and 472595.

Spacewalk 0.5 released.
Comment 4 Jan Pazdziora 2009-09-09 05:45:12 EDT
Stage validated with Satellite 5.3.0 Gold and RHEL 5.3 kickstart, channel synced from hosted.

After the "Reboot System" item with a check and after packages are installed, "Register system to RHN Satellite" and "Kickstart complete" items get a green check as well.
