Description John Sefler 2010-12-31 15:34:41 UTC
Description of problem:
Despite VERIFIED bugzilla https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=654429 there is a change in behaviour for "subscription-manager facts --list" when the system has not been registered.

In bugzilla 654429, the "subscription-manager facts --list" was verified to block output with "Consumer not registered" when the system is not registered.

Today "subscription-manager facts --list" does not block when the system is not registered.

Personally, I feel that today's behaviour is correct.

I simply want to verify that this change is behaviour was done by design and is NOT a regression.

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

[root@jsefler-onprem01 ~]# rpm -q subscription-manager

Steps to Reproduce:
[root@jsefler-onprem01 ~]# subscription-manager unregister
This system is currently not registered.

Comment 2 John Sefler 2010-12-31 16:36:28 UTC
Upon further review, it looks like the subscription-manager facts --list change in behaviour was purposefully introduced by jharris here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=661329

Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2011-01-03 16:07:22 UTC
Current behaviour seems correct to me. facts --list is purely local, so should work sans registration.

Comment 4 John Sefler 2011-01-03 17:59:06 UTC
Agreed.  Moving to VERIFIED.
