Description Todd Warner 2002-12-20 17:33:42 UTC
The request came in to be able to delete a synced channel. Any channel.
This, ideally, would include removing the channel from the database,
removing any package or errata or any other meta-data that is unique to that
channel... and possibly (commandline option) blow away the rpm itself (if it is
unique of course).

Resolution: it's going to be a python script for satellite-1.1.1, and we'll push
some schema to make this easier for Titanl.

Comment 2 Greg DeKoenigsberg 2003-01-10 17:21:18 UTC
Adding to Titan Lite Point Release for web team to track.

Comment 3 Mihai Ibanescu 2003-01-13 20:00:33 UTC
Should be implemented in rhns-satellite-tools (in the satellite
branch), plus the HEAD branch. It's called rmchannel.

RTFM for usage (yes it does have a man page). Needs testing badly, I tested it
myself but that's it.


rmchannel -c redhat-linux-i386-8.0 -c redhat-linux-i386-7.3
rmchannel -c redhat-linux-i386-8.0 -c redhat-linux-i386-7.3 --justdb
rmchannel -c redhat-linux-i386-8.0 -c redhat-linux-i386-7.3 --force

Wrong f*&^#ing tracking bug... moving to Satellite 1.1 Point
