Description Michael Hood 2012-12-17 14:50:19 EST
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):

How reproducible:

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

Actual results:

The service will not use the secondary proxy in the config.

Expected results:

Hi all,
  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.
