Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
In the System Details page, the System property "Arch" was not populated when an i386/i686 system was registered. System Engine failed to display the architecture correctly. This fix adds i386/i686 to the defined architectures. All x86-compatible architectures now show up on the System Details page.

Description James Laska 2012-04-13 16:35:53 UTC
Created attachment 577377 [details]

Description of problem:

See attached screenshot.  The system property "Arch" is empty for all RHEL5 i386 registered+subscribed systems.  All RHEL5 x86_64 show the expected value of "x86_64".  I have not confirmed whether RHEL6 i386 systems have a valid Arch property yet.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 * katello-0.1.309-1.el6.src.rpm
 * katello-candlepin-cert-key-pair-1.0-1.src.rpm
 * katello-certs-tools-1.0.4-1.el6.src.rpm
 * katello-cli-0.1.107-1.el6.src.rpm
 * katello-configure-0.1.107-1.el6.src.rpm
 * katello-qpid-broker-key-pair-1.0-1.src.rpm
 * katello-qpid-client-key-pair-1.0-1.src.rpm
 * katello-selinux-0.1.10-1.el6.src.rpm
 * pulp-1.0.4-1.el6.src.rpm

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Register a RHEL5 i386 client to a System Engine
2. Navigate to the Systems list in the System Engine web-ui
3. Select the newly registered system and observe system properties
Actual results:

 * The system architecture is empty

Expected results:

 * The system architecture should not be empty

Additional info:

 * See attached screenshot

 * The subscription-manager client shows uname.machine as i386

> # subscription-manager facts --list | grep -i i.86
> uname.machine: i686

Comment 1 James Laska 2012-04-13 17:25:44 UTC
 - This affects *all* RHEL i386 registered systems, RHEL5 and RHEL6.

Comment 2 James Laska 2012-04-18 12:23:55 UTC
Anyone know how severe it is that registered i386 systems do not properly display their architecture in the system summary on Katello?

Is this just a minor UI issue, or is the lack of architecture data more fundamental.

== Additional data ==

 * I'm able to successfully find x86_64 systems by searching for 'system.machine:x86_64'.
 * I'm able to successfully find i386 systems by searching for 'system.machine:i686'

I have no idea if this is good/bad?  If this is just a UI quirk, this feels safe to move to 1.1.0.  Please advise.

Comment 3 Tom McKay 2012-04-18 12:30:06 UTC
The info displayed comes from the system fact uname.machine passed through
{ 'i386' => 'x86', 'ia64' => 'Itanium', 'x86_64' => 'x86_64', 'ppc' => 'PowerPC',
      's390' => 'IBM S/390', 's390x' => 'IBM System z', 'sparc64' => 'SPARC Solaris' }

This is only a display issue, though it clearly is an issue in this case.

Comment 4 James Laska 2012-04-18 12:34:09 UTC
Thanks Tom, proposing for cloudforms-1.1.0 and 1.0.z.  This is not critical for the 1.0 release.
