Description pierre.casenove 2013-06-25 07:31:55 EDT
Description of problem:
Spacewalk 1.9 introduced the possibility to configure rhncfg-client to output the diffs on config files managed by spacewalk, even is the file is not readable by everyone.
The new option "display_diff = True" is needed in file /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhncfg-client.conf to print the output.

This works through the CLI but does not work through the WEB UI

Moreover, in the latest spacewalk client rpms, the default rhncfg-client.conf file does not contain the parameter "display_diff = True".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):1.9

How reproducible: Manage a non world readable file through spacewalk

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Manage (for example) sshd_config file (which is not world readable) by spacewalk
2. Schedule a config file comparison from the WEB UI
3. Once the comparison done, go to the result page

Actual results:
Message "Differences exist in a file that is not readable by all. Re-deployment
of configuration file is recommended" is printed in the web UI

Expected results: differences, is some exist.
