Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 517125
scheduling pkg upgrades through SSM properly reflects pkgs per system, but not in SDC
Last modified: 2014-07-04 09:27:30 EDT
Description of problem:
While scheduling package upgrades (or applying Errata) using SSM with multiple systems selected, there is a confirmation page with information "Confirm Package Upgrade"
The packages you have selected will be installed to the compatible selected systems, listed below:
and the list shows the packages that will be scheduled for install on a per system basis. Depending on the state of your systems, the packages listed will be different on each system (as expected when one system already has a pkg installed). However, after confirming the scheduled install, going to the Events scheduled for each system and clicking the pending event will display that ALL of the packages (or applied Errata pkgs) are scheduled for install. So that means that even the systems for which the packages are already installed, the system is still scheduled for a new install of a package that it already has.
Clearly the SSM is very smart/aware of what packages are already installed on individual systems, yet the scheduler appears to dispatch a union of all packages to each selected system.
I am attaching a screenshot that shows the confirmation window with the applicable packages selected on a per system basis.
Note that on system fjs-0-12.rhndev.redhat.com, only one package will be installed/upgraded.
I am also attaching a screenshot that shows the pending events on fjs-0-12.rhndev.redhat.com which shows that two packages are scheduled for install/upgraded. It should only show the one.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
infer from the description above and checkpoint your reproduction steps against the screenshots attached.
each system is being scheduled for upgrade/install of packages with a union of all packages
each system should only be scheduled for the upgrade/install of packages applicable to the system as previously indicated in the SSM confirmation window.
