Description Máirín Duffy 2007-03-14 15:04:38 UTC

System has not checked into RHN in a while. An errata is released that applies
to it. A week later, the errata has not been applied (of course, the system has
not checked in) but auto-errata update has scheduled the errata application.

Here is how various pages in the webui reflect this scenario currently (RHN 500):

- /rhn/errata/details/ ('Affected Systems' tab for the errata)
  says 'no systems'

- /network/systems/details/history/pending.pxt ('Events > Pending' tab for the
SDC of the system)
  lists 'errata update scheduled by (none)' <= for the errata. scheduled on the
same day the errata was released.

- /rhn/systems/details/ ('Software > Errata' tab for the SDC of the
  does *not* list the errata in question. Lists other erratas though, with the
clock icon to indicate they are pending. However, today is 3/14, the errata in
our example was released 3/8, the most recent errata listed on this page is 1/11

- /rhn/systems/details/packages/ ('Software > Packages >
Upgrade' tab for SDC) 
  just to verify, errata does not show up on this list. errata is for evolution
and no evolution upgrades are listed here.

- /rhn/errata/ (all errata page)
  errata is shown on this screen, but the 'systems' column says there are 0
systems that it applicable to. How about our system that has it pending? perhaps
the column should list pending and still applicable?

- /network/systems/details/history/event.pxt ('events > pending' tab in sdc)
  shows the errata is scheduled / queued and not yet picked up by system

Note that the errata in question was released pre-RHN500.

So checking things this morning for the system in question:

- /rhn/errata/details/

OK - lists machine

- /network/systems/details/history/pending.pxt

No pending events 

- /rhn/systems/details/

OK - wireshark is listed

- /rhn/systems/details/packages/

OK - wireshark is listed

- /rhn/errata/

Machine count appears to be correct

- /network/systems/details/history/event.pxt

Hmmm, I can't find anything here.  I was expecting to find the scheduling of
wireshark?  Perhaps this is the only remaining issue?

Otherwise, looks very good :)

Comment 11 Máirín Duffy 2007-03-15 14:59:38 UTC
this bug seems all set except that the errata action was not scheduled. since
that issue is captured in bug 232341, I'm going to close this bug out.
