Bug Fix Advisory Red Hat Network Satellite bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0897-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-11-18
Last updated on: 2010-11-18
Affected Products: Red Hat Network Satellite (v. 5.3 for RHEL 4)
Red Hat Network Satellite (v. 5.3 for RHEL 5)

Details

Updated packages that address various issues are now available for Red Hat
Network Satellite.

Red Hat Network Satellite is a systems management tool for Linux-based
infrastructures. It allows for provisioning, remote management and monitoring of
multiple Linux deployments with a single, centralized tool.

These updated Red Hat Network Satellite packages provide fixes for the following
bugs:

* yum repository generation would not complete for Z-stream (EUS) channels on
satellites upgraded from 520. This update resolves this issue and yum upgrades
now work without fault . (BZ#523673)

* the time needed to subscribe or unsubscribe systems from a base channel using
the System Set Manager was unexpectedly long. This update provides performance
and scalability improvements. (BZ#525588)

* selecting one or more systems on the Target Systems page for channel
subscription would result in an Internal Server Error. With this update,
subscriptions run now without fault. (BZ#559015)

* the time needed to call system.getName was unexpectedly long. With this
update, the results of the call are faster now. (BZ#575796)

* systems with auto-application of errata applied could have tried to update
before the channel repodata was generated, which resulted in the errata not
being applied. This update resolves the issue and channel repodata is generated
before updating. (BZ#576139)

* cobbler system record creation resulted in traceback and internal server
error, due to an invalid character. This update resolves the issue. (BZ#577074)

* viewing the list of all users only allowed the first page to be viewed. This
update fixes the issue in the list code and is now working correctly.
(BZ#590204)

* the api channel.software.mergeErrata() call would associate non-custom errata
to custom channels instead of cloning them. With this update, all Errata are
cloned and packages are added.(BZ#591291)

* subscribing or unsubscribing from child channels via the System Set Manager
would not update entitlement counts. This update fixes the issue and all
entitlement counts can be updated. (BZ#595473)

* the api call channel.software.mergeErrata, mergePackage, and errata.clone
allowed modification of non-custom channels. This update allows only custom
channels to be modified with those calls. (BZ#601656)

* the api calls channel.software.mergeErrata & mergePackage would not update the
outdated errata and package lists for subscribed servers. With this update, all
outdated errata and package lists are updated. (BZ#603258)

* adding errata to a custom channel with package unchecked association did not
move all packages of appropriate architectures to the destination channel. With
this update, all packages of the appropriate architectures are moved correctly.
(BZ#605383)

* the errata.listPackages() api call was very slow, much slower than previous
versions of Satellite. This update fixes the issue. (BZ#623447)

Users of Red Hat Network Satellite are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which resolve these issues.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

or

yum upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
