[root@fjs-0-12 ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 7)
[root@fjs-0-12 ~]# 


1. provision rhel 4_u7 client
2. run update on all errata
3. some kernel stuff fails.
4. remove kernel from skiplist on client
5. rerun errata update..

two packages remain, listed above w/ the above error on client
Comment 2 wes hayutin 2009-04-17 16:32:19 EDT
recreated on both fjs-0-12 and fjs-0-18

step 5, rerun pkg update..
pkgs installed but still listed as updates
Comment 3 Preethi Thomas 2009-04-20 14:54:45 EDT
Looks like packages installed from ui are still listed as updates.
1. provision rhel4u7 client.
2. register it to satellite
3. go to SDC-> Software->Packages->Install.
4. Select the first 2 packages and
5. Schedule the install of the packages.
6. run rhn_check -vvv
7.notice that packages are successfully installed
8. go back to SDC->Packages->List/Remove 
9. Notice that the 2 packages are listed in the list
10 Now go to SDC->Software->Packages->Install
Comment 4 Brad Buckingham 2009-05-07 17:17:28 EDT
After investigating using the latest code from git, these issues appear to already be resolved (i.e. not able to reproduce).

It appears that:

- the description, comment #1 and comment #2 related to errata/upgrades are likely addressed by the fix that was implemented with bug 498273 (modified 2009-05-06 13:50:03 EDT)

- comment #3 related package installs appears to be a duplicate of bug 498295 (modified 2009-05-04 18:17:40)

Since there have been multiple issues found in this area, I'm going to move this bugzilla to modified and then to on_qa so that it can go through verification, just in case this isn't a duplicate of the others.
Comment 5 wes hayutin 2009-05-11 10:44:42 EDT
verified 5/7.1
