Description Dimitar Yordanov 2013-09-16 19:41:57 UTC
Description of problem:
API call system.scheduleSyncPackagesWithSystem seems to be broken.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Let's have systems S with system id Sid and system T with system id Tid.
2. System S has installed package microcode_ctl:
{'installtime': <DateTime '20130912T16:54:19' at 2ad0830>, 'epoch': '1', 'version': '1.17', 'release': '15.el6_4', 'arch': 'AMD64', 'id': 257, 'name': 'microcode_ctl'}

System T does not have the package "microcode_ctl" installed.


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 1224, in __call__
    return self.__send(self.__name, args)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 1578, in __request
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 1264, in request
    return self.single_request(host, handler, request_body, verbose)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 1297, in single_request
    return self.parse_response(response)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 1473, in parse_response
    return u.close()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 793, in close
    raise Fault(**self._stack[0])
xmlrpclib.Fault: <Fault 1213: 'redstone.xmlrpc.XmlRpcFault: No packages to sync'>

Actual results:
No action  is scheduled.

Expected results:
Package install action is scheduled.

Comment 1 Tomas Lestach 2013-09-17 09:42:33 UTC
I followed the reproducer and the missing package (zsh in my case) was correctly scheduled to be installed.

Among the Pending Events I see:
Summary:	Package Synchronization scheduled by admin
Details:	This action will be executed after 09/17/13 1:58:19 PM AFT.

Btw. What is the reason for specifying the last checkin time as the schedule date?

Would you, please, enhance the reproducer?
