[Satellite v6] Sync Plan still runs after removing it from the WEBUI

Solution Unverified - Updated -

Environment

  • Red Hat Satellite v6.0.x

Issue

  • Sync plan executes even after removing it from the Satellite WEBUI.

Resolution

  • This issue was fixed in version 6.1.1 of Satellite which was released on 12 August, 2015.

To confirm that you are hitting the issue:

  • Create a rake file /usr/share/foreman/lib/tasks/schedules.rake with the below contents.
[root@satellite-server ~]# vi /usr/share/foreman/lib/tasks/schedules.rake

task :list_active_sync_schedules => :environment do

  User.current = User.first
  products = ::Katello::Product.joins(:repositories).uniq
  products.each do |product|
    product.repositories.each do |repo|
      schedules = Katello.pulp_server.resources.repository_schedule.list(repo.pulp_id, repo.importer_type)
      if !schedules.empty?
        puts "'#{repo.name}' in Product '#{product.name}' with product ID '#{product.id}' has #{schedules.length} sync plans attached to them"
      end
    end
  end
end

task :cleanup_sync_schedules => :environment do

  User.current = User.first
  if ENV['product_id']
    product = Katello::Product.find(ENV['product_id'])
    puts "Removing sync schedules for product: #{product.name}"
    product.repositories.each do |repo|
      repo.set_sync_schedule(nil)
    end
    product.sync_plan = nil
    product.save!
  else
    puts "Please specify a product ID to remove sync schedules for (e.g. rake cleanup_sync_schedules product_id=1)"
  end
end
  • Execute the following command to list the sync schedules.
[root@satellite-server ~]# foreman-rake list_active_sync_schedules

Diagnostic Steps

  • Install and setup pulp-admin command as described here.

  • Login to the pulp with the below pulp-admin command.

[root@satellite-server ~]# pulp-admin login -u admin -p `grep "^default_password:" /etc/pulp/server.conf | awk '{print $2}'`
  • Check for the next sync schedule using the below command.
[root@satellite-server ~]# for I in $(pulp-admin rpm repo list --fields id|perl -pe 's/\n//g'|perl -pe 's/Id:/\nId:/g'|grep Id:|sed -e 's/    //g'|awk '{ print $2; }');do echo $I;pulp-admin rpm repo sync schedules list --repo-id $I;echo;done
