Description Justin Sherrill 2008-06-11 21:14:12 UTC
In 5.1 we modified reprovisioning to allow re-activation keys and activation
keys to work together.  

Currently though, if the activation key has a different base channel, the
registration fails with a conflicting activation key error.

We need to modify the backend so that it will look at the non-reactivation key
for the base channel if they differ.

Bug 449846 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug.  Please verify this to be the case.  The issue still needs to be checked, but Cliff and I found no delta between the two.

Comment 4 Justin Sherrill 2009-04-15 22:17:06 UTC
This should work now and should be fairly easily backport-able.

master:  d040ff9..8faefeb
VADER:  8ae88c8..a8c674e

The fix basically involved not setting the base channel of a reactivation token unless there is an activation token with another base channel set.

You will still get a conflicting base channel message if you have two regular activation keys with different base channels, but you should no longer receive the message if you have a single activation key with a different base channel and try to re-provision with it.
