Description hmiles 2013-10-21 18:02:52 UTC
Description of problem:

While upgrading satellite server schema from Satellite with external Oracle database to version 5.6, schema upgrade failed with:


drop index rhn_url_probe_pid_ptype_idx
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-02429: cannot drop index used for enforcement of unique/primary key

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 5.6

How reproducible:
(uncertain, like with the other similar bugs (987183, 877299, or 875672) the error occurs with only some external Oracle instances, and not yet replicated in-house)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade Satellite 5.3 with external Oracle database to Satellite 5.6

Actual results:
Fails with error above.

Expected results:

Additional info:
This is similar to the other known issues for similar indexes (rhn_eclonedtmp_teid_feid_idx, rhn_ug_id_name_org, rhn_sg_id_oid_name_idx), please refer to Knowledgebase solution for details and workaround

Please note that if customer is running into the same ORA-02429 error but with another object not listed on the above solution, file a new Bugzilla from the support case so it can be looked into, confirmed whether the same workaround applies, and addressed properly.

Looking at, it's another index that's being dropped as it's no longer needed.  So similar to the others listed in, should be okay to leave it there for now as a workaround (and as noted in kbase, customer will want to make a note for the future so when the long-term fix is available they can then apply steps and get back to the official schema).

Comment 4 Tomas Lestach 2018-04-10 08:28:38 UTC
We have re-reviewed this bug, as part of an ongoing effort to improve Satellite/Proxy feature and bug updates, review and backlog.

This bug has currently no open customer cases. While this bug may still valid, we do not see it being implemented prior to the EOL of the Satellite 5.x product. As such, this is being CLOSED DEFERRED.
