Satellite: Internal Server Error observed when comparing configuration files on 500 machines

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Started configuration file comparison on about 500 hosts
  • Tried pointing the browser to Completed Actions page: The browser spooled and eventually displayed the error message "500 Error - Internal Server Error"
  • A few minutes later I switched to the Pending Actions page. I could see that approximately 60% of hosts completed comparison
  • Tried switching back to Completed Actions page unsuccessfully.


  • RHN Satellite 5.4.1
