Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 881830
KickstartFileSyncTask won't re-create content of /var/lib/rhn/kickstarts/wizzard directory
Last modified: 2013-03-04 07:57:39 EST
Description of problem:
The following directory on RHN Satellite:
contains kickstart files for every kickstart profile defined on RHN Satellite.
Should the content of this directory be deleted (which happens for example
automatically during RHN Satellite upgrade), KickstartFileSyncTask will
not re-create its content as it should (i.e. the task which should
be syncing the kickstart files to disk will not sync anything).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Satellite 5.5, create a kickstart profile
2. Check /var/lib/rhn/kickstarts/wizzard directory, a kickstart file
for the profile should be created by tomcat.
3. Delete the kickstart file from the step 2.
4. Manually execute KickstartFileSyncTask from:
5. See whether taskomatic re-created the deleted file.
The deleted kickstart file will never be re-created by taskomatic.
The deleted file is re-created by taskomatic
Change in behavior was introduced by bug #863479 and the following commit:
create /var/lib/rhn/kickstarts/wizard/*.cfg files if missing by the KickstartFileSyncTask ...
+ bonus: fix the query returning all kickstart data to contain only unique entries
