Importing manifest never completes and the Actions::Katello::Provider::ManifestImport task goes in planned-pending state on Red Hat Satellite 6.

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Red Hat Satellite 6.2.z.


  • Importing manifest takes a long time and never completes. The task Actions::Katello::Provider::ManifestImport goes in planned and pending state.


  • Change the state of task Actions::Katello::Provider::ManifestImport from planned to stopped.
# systemctl stop foreman-tasks
# foreman-rake console 
ForemanTasks::Task.where(:label => "Actions::Katello::Provider::ManifestImport", :state => "planned").map { |task| task.update_column(:state, "stopped") }
# systemctl start foreman-tasks
  • Confirm that the task is now present in stopped tasks:
# su - postgres -c "psql -d foreman -c 'select label,count(*),state from foreman_tasks_tasks where state = '\''stopped'\'' group by label,state;'"
  • Restart the Satellite service:
# katello-service restart 
  • Now try to import manifest again on Satellite, go to Satellite web UI --> Content --> Red Hat Subscriptions --> Manage Manifest --> Click Choose File, select the manifest file you created, and click Open --> Upload.
