Description Justin Sherrill 2009-06-30 19:31:01 EDT
So the Channel_queries query channels_with_packages is supposed to list all the child channels with a particular package (the manager layer call is ChannelManager.findChildChannelsWithPackage()).  

The problem is that it doesn't restrict channels to child channels.  Two ways to reproduce (both requiring you to create a base channel with rhncfg* packages in it):

1.  Create base channel 
2.  Push rhncfg* packages to the base channel
3.  Create new activation key (leave base channel to "satellite default")
4.  Check "enable config deploy" and hit submit

Results: the custom base channel will be selected

Second way to reproduce

1.  Create base channel same as above
2.  Create package profile
3.  Create kickstart profile
4.  Within kickstart profile details, set the package  profile to the one created above
5.  Try to re-provision a machine with this profile

Results:  System registration will fail with:

Error Message:
    Token `Kickstart re-activation key for 4u6 dhcp231-208.' has more than one base channel assigned
Error Class Code: 62
Error Class Info: Token contains invalid, obsoleted or insufficient settings
