Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 536522
Unlicensed instances should not appear as "NORMAL" in HA server list
Last modified: 2011-03-25 15:36:57 EDT
Instances of the server which do not have a license file installed are obviously not usable -- but show up as status "NORMAL" in server list
1. Install main server ('rhq1') and assure it is functional.
2. Install second instance ('rhq2') but do not upload the license file.
3. On rhq1, 'Administration > List Servers'
4. View results.
Some indication that this box is otherwise not actually usable within the cloud since it is not licensed
Status of "NORMAL"
I haven't yet attempted to have an agent registered to this server in HA despite its unlicensed status. That said, we still probably shouldn't show it as NORMAL if it is not actually usable in the first place.
Upon further consideration, since systems can apparently be registered through the non-licensed server, and this is a known functionality, perhaps this is not as much an issue.
However -- I still think "NORMAL" should be replaced, since it is still not a valid state. Although agents can be registered, the server UI cannot otherwise be used. Maybe a state of "UNREGISTERED" or "UNLICENSED", or something similar, would be valid.
This bug was previously known as http://jira.rhq-project.org/browse/RHQ-863
mass add of key word FutureFeature to help track
RHQ server no longer requires license files. this issue is now obsolete.
