Description of problem:
Cisco is using Proxy server. Published new errata associated with custom
channels and packages. These packages are in the proxy server.

After publishing the errata, if I go to the details page of that errata then I
see the following message under the verification heading:

        Cisco Linux:
        Package no longer available envoy-1.71-1.noarch.rpm
        Package no longer available cisco-EMPsysedge-4.0.2-1.i386.rpm

        Cisco Linux (beta):
        Package no longer available envoy-1.71-1.noarch.rpm

envoy-1.71-1.noarch.rpm and cisco-EMPsysedge-4.0.2-1.i386.rpm are the
package associated with this errata.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a new errata
2.Publish it
3.Asscociate a custom channel with the errata - update
4.Associate a package in the custom channel with the errata - update
5.click [Errata] on the lefthand side menu
6.Click the errata just published

Actual Results:  package no longer available <package name>

Expected Results:  "package no longer available" message should not appear and
the packages should be available

Additional info:

The packages associated with the errata are in the proxy server

they are on the proxy, but not the central RHN server.  we've no way of serving
the packages.  if the proxy tools can populate a field in the database to
signify packages present on the proxy, we can change this display.  assigning to

Comment 2 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-07-18 16:51:17 UTC
We could use the indication that the path is null.
If we had a flag 'this package resides on a proxy', next question we'll have to
ask is 'which proxy', and then we'd have to somehow correlate the errata editor
with the proxy. I'd go with the simple case (i.e. null path) for now, the
complexity for the alternative solution is to be determined. Chip?

Comment 3 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-08-22 13:51:15 UTC
robin, can we do something about this?

Comment 4 Robin Norwood 2003-02-04 16:32:41 UTC
Hrm - this is an old one.  I seem to recall doing something along these lines a
while ago, but I don't have a proxy to test it with handy.
