Description of problem:
RHN Satellite 530 server is not properly displaying errata on the Systems tab. If we look at the "System Overview" page, we see numbers in the packages column, but 0's in the errata column. If we go to the Errata tab, under the Relevant section there are no errata.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- Not Always.
Steps to Reproduce
- sync a RHEL5 base and child channel and register a system
- After a couple of days when new errata are released, Go to Systems Overview page and check the errata and packages count.
- For some systems it shows 0 errata count and 10-12 packages with no errata links
- Package should have errata links
A workaround is to use : satellite-sync --force-errata -c <<channel_name>>
I'm not able to reproduce this myself, nor on any of our 5.3 systems that have been running for quite a while.
Can you point me to a reproducer?
Also, I'm a tad confused. The yum cache (located within /var/cache/rhn/repodata) is completely different to the errata/package cache (located in the rhnServerNeededcache table).
We have re-reviewed this bug, as part of an ongoing effort to improve Satellite/Proxy feature and bug updates, review and backlog.
We believe this bug has been fixed in the latest Satellite 5 version (5.7), so closing the bug as CURRENTRELEASE. Please feel free to re-open in case you discover any issues.
