Description Jeff Ortel 2008-09-25 18:52:26 UTC
Description of problem:

Satellite 5.0.1 reports a internal server error instead of a more descriptive error when someone choose the name of an existing kickstart profile in saving a cloned kickstart profile.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1  select an existing kickstart profile
2  create a new profile using "clone kickstart" button  
3  enter a profile name that already exists  
4  press clone kickstart  

Actual results:

we have an internal server error page

Expected results:

we should have a more descriptive error message displayed in the same page as it happens for other error conditions

Additional info:

Customer says that this happens in 4.x as well but I have not tested this. A workaround for this is to use the back button of the browser and choose an unused kickstart profile name.

ui now handles this case with an appropriate error message.
