Description Garik Khachikyan 2010-08-20 12:25:24 UTC
Description of problem:
Let's have satellite/client both configured to accept staging content (Enable Staging Contents - SAT; stagingContent=1, stagingContentWindow=1 - Client).
Then a simple rhn_check on client side brakes with python exceptions in /var/log/up2date:
[Fri Aug 20 14:07:07 2010] up2date successfully retrieved authentication token from up2date server
[Fri Aug 20 14:07:18 2010] up2date Updating package profile
[Fri Aug 20 14:07:37 2010] up2date Updating package profile
[Fri Aug 20 14:10:59 2010] up2date D: do_call packages.checkNeedUpdate ('rhnsd=1',) {}
[Fri Aug 20 14:10:59 2010] up2date
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_check", line 330, in __run_action
    (status, message, data) = CheckCli.__do_call(method, params, kwargs)
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_check", line 322, in __do_call
    method = getMethod.getMethod(method, "/usr/share/rhn/", "actions")
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/getMethod.py", line 78, in getMethod
    actions = __import__(modulename)
  File "/usr/share/rhn/actions/packages.py", line 256, in ?
    yum_base = YumAction()
  File "/usr/share/rhn/actions/packages.py", line 52, in __init__
exceptions.AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'cfg'

[Fri Aug 20 14:10:59 2010] up2date D: local action status:  ((6,), 'Fatal error in Python code occured', {})

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

How reproducible:
always on client with a latest rhn-client-tools content (from Spacewalk build system)

Steps to Reproduce:

Expected results:
no exceptions at all, should be functioning ok

Comment 1 Garik Khachikyan 2010-08-20 12:26:28 UTC
it's actually blocks the whole testing process of the feature.

putting as a blocker issue.

Comment 2 Michael Mráka 2010-08-23 11:26:56 UTC
The issue has been fixed in bug 589120.
Anyway latest rhn-client-tools should require newer yum-rhn-plugin.

Fixed in spacewalk master
commit c51b0848f29603f203c9756a8614c8a8f5c2056b
    625778 - require newer yum-rhn-plugin

Comment 3 Michael Mráka 2010-08-24 09:57:51 UTC
