Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 806476
Scientific Linux client/kernel upgrade failure
Last modified: 2012-11-01 12:22:53 EDT
Description of problem:
I have to delete the client from Spacewalk and re-run rhnreg_ks before upgrading from 6.0 to 6.1 and 6.1 to 6.2
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have system fully patched on 6.1 with kernel patch bringing it to 6.2 (must happen before going to step 2)
2.Change client channel to 6.2 in Spacewalk WebUI
3.Refresh Client window
4.New Packages are available
5.WebUI: Apply updates -or- client console: yum update
Actual results: Tells me that no 6.2 channel available. rhn_check fails with same result
Expected results: packages to install and yum to see repo properly and install packages
Additional info:I am fairly new to Spacewalk. I had a fellow Spacewalk guy see this and he didn't know what caused this problem. I tried the rolling 6 repo and it wouldn't work.
Could you please paste the exact output of
running on the client system that shows the error?
I was unable to replicate the issue again. It appears to just be a wonky configuration on my end. I will report back if a different system produces the same problem.
Also, I just upgraded to 1.7 and added scientific linux rolling repo and it works now.
OK, thank you for the information provided.
I'm closing this report for now as the issue you were experiencing does
now show anymore.
