When running a scheduled profiled configuration file comparison on a Satellite I encounter: "Fatal error in Python code occured [[6]] "

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Red Hat Network Satellite 5


  • Received an email from the Satellite that a scheduled action failed overnight.


  • Either add the expected path to the target client systems or remove the schedule action from the scheduled channel on the Satellite's webui.

Root Cause

  • The target client system did not have the expected path, thus the failure and error:
ls -l /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6
ls: cannot access /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6: No such file or directory
