Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 499055
unable to install sat530 iso on rhel 4u7 xen guest
Last modified: 2009-05-13 17:30:42 EDT
Description of problem:
1. register a rhel 4u7 xen guest to hosted
2. run install, I think some u8 packages are picked up, and throwing off the install
3. up2date -u the box to rhel4u8
The same build works on a fresh install of rhel 4u7 server non virt.

fyi.. this is on a xen guest... also recreated on rhel4U7 so I'm not really sure whats going on here. The only variable is that this install was on a xen guest.
Couldn't reproduce this in a Xen guest on test13-64. Registered to hosted and updated, even unblocked the kernel packages and updated those.
Satellite install completed normally.
Did this happen more than once to you? Any additional details you can think of? (which host, etc?)
The error is supposedly caused by a complicated join the Oracle can't deal with, which makes no sense as we're using the same Oracle versions and it's normally fine. Also the query in your output just before the error doesn't look terribly obscure to me:
From IRC convo with Wes, this bug has been encountered three times, always on the same Xen host, and with guests running el4u7 and el4u8. This Xen host has been used and working fine for about three months, most recently the Apr 24 ISO installed fine.
Jan and Michael, can you both take a look and see if anything pops-out at you about this one.

tail end of an strace of oraclerhnsat process.
Adding the tail end of the strace output of the oraclerhnsat process running during the database installation.
I've never seen this error on any of our xen guests. If it's reproducible only on one host/guest I'd blame hardware (memory/disk).
anyone have another machine I can reproduce on?
I can reproduced similar behaviour on xen with rhel48 too, but it writes another error:
Bug 500205 - cannot complete installation of satellite-5.3 on xen guest rhel4

Note: that one is caused by the machine being x86_64. And I believe that you would be able to get the problem from bug 500205 even on physical hardware.
I'm affraid that even if the bugzilla is currently assigned to me, I really do not have any clue how to proceed.

Wes, do you have that reproducer Xen guest machine around?
agreed, looking for hardware..
I have a request in to use test02-vmx.rhndev
finally verified its working fine on another system..
