Description David Hrbáč 2010-12-09 10:59:16 UTC
Description of problem:
We are using spacewalk to update machines. As of time being I can see that all machines are up-to-date within system overview. When I run yum check-update on any box I can see:
[root@sso-ha1 ~]# yum check-update
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, rhnplugin

 * updates: ftp.fi.muni.cz

tzdata.i386          2010l-1.el5          centos5-updates-i386

Centos5-updates-i386 is spacewalk provided channel.

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

Actual results:
System overview shows no updates.

Expected results:
System overview has to show the updates.

It looks like this is a dup of bug 585965 which has been fixed in Spacewalk 1.2.

Is the issue still present in Spacewalk 1.2?

Comment 3 David Hrbáč 2010-12-10 13:42:32 UTC
Well, we have just upgraded to 1.2. I can see now updates on a few machines. Machines stoped communicating over jabber.

Osa-dispatcher is now again full of:
2010/12/10 14:27:41 +02:00 25128 osad/osa_dispatcher.process_once('Not notifying jabber nodes',)

So we are stuck again with clients not picking the tasks up. I must say 6 weeks spacewalk evaluation is continuous debug process for us. We have reported blocking bugs and howto hacks. This issue can be resolved with deleting all osad enabled boxes from spacewalk, regenerating osad-auth.conf and re-registering boxes. I don't want to do it every time I have to deal with spacewalk server...

Comment 4 Michael Mráka 2010-12-10 15:49:58 UTC
So if I read it correctly the system overview issue is fixed.
Thanks for confirming it.

As for osad please open new bugzilla with your observations and reproducer or feel free to add your comments to another osad related bugzilla if exists.


Comment 5 David Hrbáč 2010-12-13 08:47:04 UTC
Thanks, update helped. Osad is broken for now. I will report.

Comment 6 David Hrbáč 2010-12-23 08:54:18 UTC
Well, we still have this issue. I can see, that one of out system "is missing one packages" within Systems overview. Details are: tzdata-2010l-1.el5.x86_64.

From console I can see:
