Check box "Disconnected RHN Satellite" located in tab:

===> Disconnected RHN Satellite -> Unchecked

# grep  server.satellite.rhn_parent /etc/rhn/rhn.conf

Actual results:

# grep  server.satellite.rhn_parent /etc/rhn/rhn.conf
server.satellite.rhn_parent = satellite.rhn.redhat.com
server.satellite.rhn_parent = satellite.rhn.redhat.com

# satellite-sync -l

Expected results:

The value of server.satellite.rhn_parent in /etc/rhn/rhn.conf is dismissed.
satellite-sync  does not work.

Comment 1 Tomas Lestach 2012-12-18 11:15:49 EST
I see the 'Disconnected RHN Satellite' box checked.

# grep disconnected /etc/rhn/rhn.conf 

After unchecking the ckeckbox I see

grep disconnected /etc/rhn/rhn.conf                                

This issue does not seem to be in WebUI. Reseting to Satellite Synchronization component.
