Setup for redundant proxy fails to use secondary proxy
Last modified: 2013-06-27 07:16:37 EDT
Description of problem:
WHen customer tries to set up redundant proxy by follwoing the user guide it fails to use the secondary proxy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Here is the proxy setup doc for 5.4.1.
would overwrite serverURL with the new value each time. try
serverURL="https://proxy1/XMLRC; https://proxy2/XMLRPC; https://satellite_server/XMLRPC"
I'm testing it right now, will edit this again when done -- done
no that does not work on RHEL6 - I do not think this feature was kept with RHEL6.
I think we should rather focus on the problem affecting the proxy here.
also confirmed not to work for RHEL5. the yum-rhn-plugin stops at the first value ; the only way around that would be to change the value.
if the customer needs this we can raise a bug if that documentation is still in RHEL5.8 but otherwise we would look into a RHEL6 RFE
The service will not use the secondary proxy in the config.
The key of your troubles is the missing semicolon at the end of line as described in the documentation.
serverURL="https://proxy1/XMLRC; https://proxy2/XMLRPC; https://satellite_server/XMLRPC;"
We are aware that it is easy to get confused so we addressed the issue in
Spacewalk master: 6b937b2d876e4d025f62785ab4b9af807cc71c50 (rhn-client-tools-1.10.11-1) in order the semicolon at the end of the line not to be obligatory.
