Description Jan Hutař 2014-02-18 11:55:28 UTC
Description of problem:
When I sync new erratum to the channel, Spacewalk do not schedules actions on systems subscribed to this channel which have "auto errata updates: yes".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have empty Spacewalk and two dumps of one channel
   (one without erratas, one full)
2. Sync dump without erratas and register system int it
3. Install all the old package versions for which you will have errata
   when you sync full dump later
4. Make that system "Auto Errata Update: Yes"
5. Sync full dump to the Satellite
6. Wait (~30 minutes), so errata update events are scheduled for the system

Actual results:
No events are scheduled

Expected results:
Errata update events for erratas synced in step "5." which are applicable for your system should be scheduled

Additional info:
After this, when you go to Errata -> Manage Errata -> <some_of_the_synced_erratas> -> Send email notification, waits few minutes and events for <some_of_the_synced_erratas> will be auto-scheduled for the system.

Same steps to reproduce on Satellite 5.6.0 with spacewalk-java-2.0.2-58.el6sat.noarch works as expected.

I believe that problem is, in a nutshell, that the Errata Mailer / Errata AutoUpdate queries now depend on the rhnServerNeededCache table. Depending on that cache instead of re-calculating all that information ourselves was the essence of the speedup for those queries. The problem seems to be that the rhnServerNeededCache table has not been completely updated by the time that Taskomatic begins processing Errata off of rhnErrataQueue. We need to find a way to block the errata task until rhnServerNeededCache is updated.

This should be fixed in Spacewalk master:

I'm also adding another commit that is not required but that will make future installations of Spacewalk run the ErrataCache task more frequently. You can't really do that as part of an upgrade, because it's not simply updating Spacewalk's database but you'd have to find a way to call into Quartz's api so it can update its database, which is not easy on an upgrade. The user can always update the Quartz schedule manually for ErrataCache to be "0 * * * * ?" to have the same effect for upgrades.
