Description of problem:
It would be cool, if upon registration you could fully update a client. I'm looking for input for the idea.
Add a check box on
|| Update to latest available packages
Mass-moving to space13.
We did not have time for this one during Spacewalk 1.4 time frame. Mass moving to Spacewalk 1.5.
Aligning under space16.
This is not a priority for Red Hat's Spacewalk developers and will likely not be completed by Red Hat in the next 2 years. We agree that this is a valid request and something that could be achieved. Will leave it open to allow for the potential of community contribution for this.
Right now I see two ways to tackle this, beyond exposing an option in UI that is stored in DB and read during registrations with activation keys.
Either this would likely require client code added to read a new value from the key to then spawn off yum update OR it could basically schedule ALL errata for installation and then rhn_check picks them up.
