Description Justin Sherrill 2010-08-13 16:00:02 UTC
When rhnpush'ing a package that already existed, you used to be able to use --force to overwrite what was already there (in the channel).  Now you cannot.  When you try this, you get an error:

 Error Message:
    ORA-00001: unique constraint (RHNSAT.RHN_CNP_CID_NID_UQ) violated
ORA-06512: at "RHNSAT.RHN_CHANNEL", line 1091
ORA-06512: at line 1
Error Class Code: 23
Error Class Info: Could not update database entry.

and the 2nd package shows up under 'Manage software packages'.  essentially it's been pushed to the satellite (again), but couldn't be associated to the channel because the package already existed.

so i had forgotten about the enable_nvrea config option.  This only happens if enable_nvrea is enabled, which it is not by default in satellite (at least it shouldn't be).

SO this may not be such a high priority bug.

Comment 3 Clifford Perry 2010-09-07 22:20:10 UTC
Lol - oh yeah - Forgot we have a config option to disable --force. This is known.
