Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 653814
satellite-sync does not honor CDN (Location Aware Updates) preferences
Last modified: 2011-02-01 11:16:28 EST
Description of problem:
satellite-sync does not honor CDN (Location Aware Updates) preferences, and always fetches the RHN Hosted content from satellite.rhn.redhat.com.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 5.4 RHN Satellite
2. Enable 'Support Location-Aware Updates' in RHN Web UI
When syncing with RHN Hosted, the satellite fetches the content from satellite.rhn.redhat.com.
The satellite should honor the CDN flag and sync the downloadable content
from a CDN node physically closer to it, if the flag is turned on.

Proposed patch for satellite-sync
It was not caused by that commit. It worked after bug 175155 has been resolved. Most probably the header was previously set somewhere in connection class, but now is not.
Commited to spacewalk.git as commit: 5cb052177992490286d2b1974dd9d4ecc4eb012b
According my test it works - from tcpdump:

cherrypicked to satellite.git as 236c7532170d1a406fef54b21046e97d62099ae0
err.. that cherrypick is commit 236c7532170d1a406fef54b21046e97d62099ae0
Changing to VERIFIED:
After the discussion with developers I have done basic blackbox testing
of satellite-sync. With spacewalk-backend-tools-1.2.13-23.el5sat
satellite-sync fetches rpms from akamai.
