I don't see error about customers.ini in the error log with Spacewalk 1.6 / nightly as of today.

Can you check if you still get the problem on the latest Spacewalk?

Comment 3 Jan Hutař 2012-01-18 09:59:43 UTC
I still see the bug there (after I have enabled Monitoring and MonitoringScout). Tested on SWnightly/OracleXE installed 2012-01-17. But when I have disables Enforcing SELinux with `setenforce 0`, I do not see that error.

This was probably incorrect reproducer as Monitoring is not supposed to run with SELinux Enforcing as of now. Please close the bug.

Fixed in Spacewalk master, b55cb176e84c519a9dcd2f68f7e75521205f98d7.

It turned out to be a race condition between /usr/bin/generate-config and /usr/bin/notif-launcher.

The message will now be

  Customers not yet generated by generate-config, sleeping for a while.

generated by notif-launcher every five seconds upon startup.

Also, the message is now in


not in


as it is now understood and handled situation.
