Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 507907
RFE - Virt Host entitlement, enabling should also include installation of OSAD
Last modified: 2014-06-25 10:34:15 EDT
Description of problem:
6/23 build rhel 5 selinux on
OSAD should be installed when you entitle a virt host.
1. register a virt capable machine
2. sdc -> change entilements, add virt, or virt platform
osad should be installed and started
osad neither installed or started
Pretty certain (95% sure) that this is a regression in behavior - will leave for developer assigned to confirm before fixing.
Don't think this is a regression, tested RHEL 5 client, registered to Satellite 5.2, added Virtualization entitlement, ran rhn_check on client, only rhn-virtualization-host is scheduled and installed. I don't recall osad ever being installed as part of this operation.
For the future when we can tackle this bug, could I get some background on why this should install osad? It's never occurred to me to be any different than a regular host. Thanks.
correct.. 5.2 does not include osad.. I think we missed it..
satellite 5.1.1 however does have osad installed for virt-hosts.
I'll stay out of it from here on out.
I've tested 5.2, 5.1.1, and 5.0, in all cases only rhn-virtualization-host is scheduled for install when you entitle a system. I've checked through the code for these branches and can find no mention of scheduling the install of osad when entitling a system for virtualization. (nor do I remember there being one)
Package Install scheduled by satadmin

This action's status is: Queued.
This action has not yet been picked up.
Wes is digging through bugzilla to see if we can pin down what he's remembering and how to get to it. Thus far still looking like not a regression.
Currently I agree to comment #4 - I spent ~30 mins last night looking at 5.0, 5.1 and 5.2 and never saw osad scheduled for installation. The osad package was/should be deployed on Virt Hosts so that events scheduled in UI for the Host to stop/start/provision/manage guests, would happen quickly and not need for login to Host and do rhn_check manually to pick up said event.
Maybe pass this by Mike McCune as well, but leaning towards, not a regression and maybe re-review this post 530.
Proposing we add this as an RFE for a post 530 Sat release.
Seems no one has clear knowledge and/or can point to when we did install osad automatically, though it makes 100% sense that we should.
