packages installed through SDC are still marked for Install in SSM
Last modified: 2014-07-04 09:23:57 EDT
Description of problem:
packages installed through SDC are still marked for install in SSM.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.register a client
2.install a package through SDC eg; agg
3.select that system
4. go to SSM->Packages->Install->Install New Packages
5. Select the channel name
6. Look for the package name that was installed from step 2
packages that are installed through SSM are listed in the Install Package list.
Only packages that are not installed on the system should be displayed in the install package list.
This needs further review/understanding. Could be client side bug not sending back the package change correctly, or somehow not being displayed correctly in UI. Does SDC show this, while SSM does not, maybe wording and queries different.
Think this is a dupe or bug 509268
This is the behavior in 5.1.1 as well.
I'm pretty sure it's that the query the SSM code uses to list all possible packages to install does not take into account what's already installed. The logic would be to list the package if at least one system in the SSM does not have the package installed, however I feel like I've explored this before and that logic was tricky (at best) to implement. I'll dig further and see if I can find a reason why this logic isn't present.
At this late stage of the release I am going to move off the release, since it is not a Regression to pass releases, sounds like a bug we need to review and address early on in next cycles.
