Description Calvin Smith 2012-10-09 18:53:11 EDT
Chapter 4 - Cloning a machine is misleading

That chapter describes the spacewalk-clone-by-date feature, which clones a channel based on a specific date. Cloning a machine from the satellite's perspective I would think would be a profile comparison and sync ( see https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Network_Satellite/5.5/html/Reference_Guide/sect-Reference_Guide-Systems.html#sect-Reference_Guide-System_Details_rArr_Software-System_Details_rArr_Software_rArr_Packages

This chapter either should be renamed "Cloning a channel to a specific date" or something that indicates that it is actually a channel and not a machine that is being cloned. Alternatively, it could be reworked to describe the profile sync functionality of the satellite server. 

Thanks in advance,

In progress. Title updated and body text being revised to reflect what actually happens. Doc hasn't been rebuilt yet.

Committed but not brewed yet. Dan seems to be taking care of that.

Old title: Chapter 4. Cloning a Machine
New title: Chapter 4. Cloning Software Channels and Errata
