Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 619288
Confusing error message from satellite-sync if mount point is empty (ERROR: server.mount_point not set in the configuration file)
Last modified: 2016-07-03 20:55:14 EDT
Description of problem:
When /var/satellite (or whatever the mount_point is) is empty, satellite-sync (e.g., satellite-sync -l) returns "ERROR: server.mount_point not set in the configuration file". This is confusing to the user, customer suggests displaying "invalid server.mount_point" instead.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Network (RHN) Satellite 5.3.0
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have mount_point in /etc/rhn/rhn.conf point to an empty directory.
3. Run satellite-sync -l
ERROR: server.mount_point not set in the configuration file
ERROR: invalid server.mount_point set in the configuration file

Already fixed during my investigation of BZ 614667 in commit 62a13f980c1b4fd016b9b3b00d1631b6a8969c77 in spacewalk.git.
Leaving to open to have it pass through QA as separate BZ.
The message should be:
ERROR: server.mount_point %s do not exist
and if some other path in server.mount_point do not exist, it should print:
ERROR: path under server.mount_point (%s) do not exist
