How can I sync custom channels when using Inter-Satellite sync

Solution Unverified - Updated -

Issue

  • Trying to sync custom channels using inter-satellite sync
  • The custom channels appear in the satellite-sync -l output (test-base-channel in this case):
[root@slave ~]# satellite-sync -l

16:12:25    p = previously imported/synced channel
16:12:25    . = channel not yet imported/synced
16:12:25    e = channel no longer supported (end-of-service)
16:12:25    base-channels:
16:12:25       . rhel-i386-server-6                       6818 
16:12:25       p rhel-x86_64-server-5                     14845 
16:12:25       p rhel-x86_64-server-6                     8902 
16:12:25       . test-base-channel                           2 
...
  • However it isn't being sync'ed when using the --include-custom-channels switch:
[root@slave ~]# satellite-sync --include-custom-channels
