Description Stephen Herr 2013-09-20 19:31:05 UTC
Description of problem:
Sometimes when you do a satellite-sync to pull in new base channels the kickstart trees are synced to disk but not imported to the database (or maybe the webui results are being cached). I don't know what causes the trees to import sometimes and what causes them to not. If you restart satellite they are visible.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. satellite-sync a base channel
2. systems -> kickstarts -> profiles -> create new kickstart profile

Actual results:
no trees are listed as available in your base channel

Expected results:
trees are available

Additional info:
A very similar thing was reported before and fixed as bug 240137.

Comment 4 Stephen Herr 2013-10-09 20:23:02 UTC
After a bunch of code inspection and various attempts at reproducing, I have concluded that the problem must have been that Taskomatic was not running. The UI actually gets the list of available kickstart trees from cobbler, so if the cobbler-sync Taskomatic task has not run since your satellite-sync has finished you will not see the kickstart trees.

As such, I will close this as not a bug.
