Description jalviso 2012-09-20 21:52:14 EDT
Description of problem: 
Request for Enhancement of "rhn-channel" command to include a switch to query the base channel of any RHEL system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: 
It is reproducible.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. When invoking the command "rhn-channel", a switch to query the base channel 
   say "-b" would be ideal.
2. Currently, we can only get all channels available which includes base 
   channel in "rhn-channel -l" but the output doesn't show which line is the
   base channel.
3. Any other command that serves this purpose is acceptable but not the 
   Satellite API "Method: getSubscribedBaseChannel" because it is not plausible
   to the requesting customer's need.

Needs to provides the base channel of a given system through a command or additional switch for "rhn-channel" command.
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info: 

Please note that the rhn-client tools is selected in the Component field because there is no selection for rhn-setup.
