Description Patrick Tavares 2012-02-28 14:24:55 EST
Description of problem:

When running satellite-sync, appending the '--debug-level=' parameter does not affect the verbosity of /var/log/rhn/rhn_server_satellite.log as expected.  However, if a 'debug=' line is added to /etc/rhn/rhn.conf, log verbosity is increased as expected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHN Satellite Server 5.4.1

How reproducible:

Always reproducible.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run satellite-sync --debug-level=5 from one terminal window.  tail -f /var/log/rhn/rhn_server_satellite.log from another terminal window and observe no change in log verbosity.

2.Modify /etc/rhn/rhn.conf by adding a debug=5 line.  Save and re-run a satellite-sync (without --debug-level=5).  Notice that log verbosity has increased when tailing /var/log/rhn/rhn_server_satellite.log.

Actual results:
No change in log file verbosity.

Expected results:
Log file verbosity should change according to the --debug-level setting.
