Whay does getvar("distro", "") show inconsistent value ?

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • The getvar("distro", "") will for example return:-

"ksrhelx8664server5u4"

Instead of "ks-rhel-x86_64-server-5-u4", which removes  " - " & "_" signs from the name.

  • Cobbler distro files under /var/lib/cobbler/config/distros.d on satellite server are not properly created , they are listed as bellow

    ksrhelx8664server5u5 
    ksrhelx8664server5u5xen 
    

Environment

  • Red Hat Network (RHN) Satellite 5.3
