HW page - look at the bottom
Description of problem:
In older versions of SW I used to see the Hardware Info for registered system in more details (like Networking info, Storage, Video, USB, Misc...).
All these info is now missing in the SW 1.1 release.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. register any system (physical or virtual, does not matter)
2. refer to /network/systems/details/hardware.pxt?sid=<SID>
very limited info about the HW
more detailed info (like network devices, USBs, VCard, etc.)
I think it's an urgent issue and needs to be fixed in SW 1.1 (included in coming Satellite release as well)
And one more issue:
In the "Bios" field of the HW info there seems is pushing python object instance and not the value:
For example on registered system one can see: "com.redhat.rhn.domain.server.Dmi$Bios@9afbe560"
It would be better displaying the info insted: "Phoenix Technologies LTD
3E01 - 06/30/2004"
IMHO this is a result of python-hwdata change. Reassigning to client component.
I think this is my bad. I converted the PXT page to Java and some detail fell off. This was corrected a week or so in git so should be OK in nightly.
Garik, could you confirm the hardware URL: is it a .do or .pxt page? If .pxt then its the old page and could be the python issue Michael Mraka mentioned. If it's a .do then could you attach a screen shot and I'll have a look.
The page is java one: with *.do extension there.
attached is the screenshot with this.

no hw info
Yep, this one is my bad but it should be fixed in nightly. Can you test from nightly or from git?
hm, sorry but not now - the installer gets broken (dependency issues).
tried for F13.
ehm, sorry for confusion: jpackage repo seems was unavail.
now it turned back to working again. will perform the installation/check against 1.2 nightly and will report soon the results. thanks.
spacewalk-java-1.2.13-1.el5 is the package that fixing the issue on SW 1.2
so, team: would you please bring the fix to SAT540 please?
btw: the current sat540 iso already contains the package with the fix of HW info.
but the only thing still missing is:
Could I see a screen shot?
hm, in SW 1.2 I don't see any "DMI" info at all.
and in the comment above I referred to the feature of that DMI info for sat540.
SW should show DMI, if there are any. I'll have to check tomorrow as my SW devel box is toasted and I need to rebuild. (Not sure why only RHEL5 works as a SW devel platform for me.)

dmi info issue
here is the issue described above:
I know have a patch that I'll apply around 20:00(GMT+8) when I get home.
The problem I have is BZ 627809 and BZ 627812 means I'm unable to do proper testing as I don't see proper storage device info.
On Xen guests, there is no storage device info and on HP Proliant servers, no devices show up. I suspect that this is because of the cciss driver. Not sure if kudzu is not picking this up, or HAL.
Running 'python /usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/hardware.py' on a HP Proliant G6 gives
'bus' : 'pci'
'driver' : 'cciss'
'pciType' : '1'
'detached' : '0'
'class' : 'RAID'
'desc' : 'Hewlett-Packard Company|Smart Array G6 controllers'
'bus' : 'pci'
'driver' : 'unknown'
'pciType' : '-1'
'device' : 'cciss/c0d0'
'detached' : '0'
'class' : 'HD'
'desc' : ''
Both machines are using 'rhn-client-tools-0.4.20-33.el5_5.2'

Fix hardware page
Hopefully its all good now...
Colin - thank you for your efforts on this.
This bug is now tracking the Sat 5.4 release. I am going to re-assign this bug to a Satellite developer to move to ON_QA for formal testing as part of Sat 5.4 ISOs.
Thank you Colin.
Since I see "DMI Info" in latest nightly, putting ON_DEV.
I have just tested it on Satellite 5.4.
I registered two host (one physical and one virtual) and all the hardware information was available, plus the BIOS field was correct as well.
Verified in stage with spacewalk-java-1.2.39-29.el5sat -> release_pending
