Description David Glaser 2009-12-16 19:19:57 UTC
Description of problem:

The package rhn-ssl-cert-check doesn't appear to be removed when upgrading from satellite 5.2.0 to 5.3.0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

only have done it once. So far always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade Satellite (this was on RHEL 5, x86_64, embedded database) from 5.2.0
2. the package rhn-ssl-cert-check-5.2.-1.2.el5 remains on the system
Actual results:

The package remains after Satellite is upgraded, but is non operative as it makes checks for rhns-satellite-tools package, which is removed during the upgrade process.

Expected results:

As it appears that this package is not provided in 5.3.0, it should check to see if the old package existed and remove it if necessary. Ideally, a new package should be provided, or its functionality be provided by another package.

I think this was moved/renamed into the RHN Tools channel. Maybe you are not subscribed to the RHN Tools channel for this package.

This is what in fact happened:

1. With Satellite 5.3.0 release, package spacewalk-ssl-cert-check was
pushed into all rhn-tools channels, which obsoleted rhn-ssl-cert-check
on all < 5.3 Satellites subscribed to rhn-tools channels
(spacewalk-ssl-cert-check did not work on < 5.3 Satellites).

2. There was a fix for this, which pushed rhn-ssl-cert-check-5.2.-1.2.el5
into all < 5.3 Satellite channels, which obsoleted 
spacewalk-ssl-cert-check < 1.8 (so that you'd have a working ssl-cert-check
in your < 5.3 Satellites again).

These two facts cause the upgrade problem described in the initial comment.

Comment 3 Milan Zázrivec 2010-09-23 15:17:51 UTC
For all Satellite customers who upgraded to Satellite 5.3 and are experiencing
this problem, the solution (or workaround) would be to (forcibly) remove
rhn-ssl-cert-check and install latest spacewalk-ssl-cert-check contained
in the Satellite 5.3 channel (or installation ISO).

With the upgrade to Satellite 5.4, the problem will be resolved automatically
during package upgrade.

QA: Install Satellite 5.2, subscribe it to rhn-tools channel, upgrade packages
and upgrade to Satellite 5.4. Check that spacewalk-ssl-cert-check package
is installed and it works as expected.
