Description Mike Hanby 2009-06-01 17:47:41 EDT
Description of problem:
I've installed two Fedora 10 i386 workstations with Spacewalk from http://spacewalk.redhat.com/yum/0.5/Fedora/10/i386/os/ and attempted to register the clients with my spacewalk server, both fail to complete rhnreg_ks without error:

rhnreg_ks --serverUrl=http://spacewalk.mydom/XMLRPC --activationkey=1-14e821a71cdd3dccd9e9392eaa7da94b
An error has occurred:
<type 'exceptions.AttributeError'>
See /var/log/up2date for more information

A partial entry for the workstation will get created on the spacewalk server, devoid of any hardware information. If I run the command again, the same error results AND another entry gets created on the spacewalk server.

I initially ran the command 3 times before I checked the web interface, 3 failures and 3 entries for the same workstation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Packages on the F10 clients:
 * rhnsd-4.5.9-1.fc10.i386
 * rhn-client-tools-0.4.24-1.fc10.noarch
 * yum-rhn-plugin-0.5.4-1.fc10.noarch
 * rhnlib-2.5.10-1.fc10.noarch
 * rhn-setup-0.4.24-1.fc10.noarch
 * rhn-check-0.4.24-1.fc10.noarch

How reproducible:
Happens every time on my two F10 i386 workstations.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create the spacewalk.repo file using http://spacewalk.redhat.com/yum/0.5/Fedora/10/i386/os/

2. yum install rhn-setup yum-rhn-plugin

3. rhnreg_ks --serverUrl=http://spacewalk.mydom/XMLRPC --activationkey=1-14e821a71cdd3dccd9e9392eaa7da94b
Actual results:
Errors and creates a partial record on the spacewalk server

Expected results:
Successfully create a complete record on the spacewalk server, or nothing at all producing an error code.

Additional info:
I've registered CentOS5 i386 and x86_64 workstations to this server successfully. So far, only my Fedora 10 clients exhibit this behavior. The rhn-setup versions differ from F10 and EL5:

Fedora 10 clients:

EL5 clients are using version:
Comment 1 Mike Hanby 2009-12-02 14:49:09 EST
I have upgraded the server to 0.6 and reinstalled one of these workstations as Fedora 12 x86_64 and installed the spacewalk related rpms directly from the Fedora repositories. This time the full hardware record is added to the spacewalk server.
Comment 2 Michael Mráka 2010-01-27 16:44:51 EST
Fedora 10 is no more supported in Spacewalk 0.7 and as per comment #1 hardware info works on newer Fedora.
Closing now. Feel free to reopen if you disagree.
Comment 3 Michael Mráka 2010-02-16 08:00:03 EST
Spacewalk 0.8 has been released
