Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 507789
Slaves specified in rhn_server_iss.conf still not able to sync channels
Last modified: 2015-01-04 16:57:03 EST
Description of problem:
Referring to Install Guide there should be configured a server property "allowed_iss_slaves" in a file *"/etc/rhn/default/rhn_server_iss.conf"* containing the slaves list synchronizing by ISS from this server. Then restart of httpd needed.
But doing this does not help as slaves still not able to, for example, list the server's channel list. and only adding the slave to the /etc/rhn/rhn.conf helps.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take a slave which has the same Satellite 5.3.0 version than your server.
2. Modify server property file /etc/rhn/default/rhn_server_iss.conf and apply the slave url in the "allowed_iss_slaves" property.
3. Do service httpd restart
4. Use ISS on slave side - e.g. try to retrieve channels list.
ERROR: The Server listed within iss-parent is not configured for ISS
Please review your configuration before trying again.
The channel list of server should be retrieved.
thats because you're editing the wrong config file. You should be first looking in /etc/rhn/rhn.conf which takes precedence over any defaults configs.
Please read the white paper if you're unsure how to use the feature,
