- We just upgraded both our satellite servers from 5.3 to 5.4. The upgrade went smoothly, except the HTTP Proxy does not get carried over.
- For a connected satellite, it means the activation step (step 4 in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/satellite-upgrade/satellite-upgrade.txt) fails.
I am referring to this line in /etc/rhn/rhn.conf:
server.satellite.http_proxy = my.proxy.com:port
Obviously this is easy to work around, but this setting gets clobbered twice during the update. First during the upgrade (step 1) and then again in step 7 or 8 (not sure which one).
- Upgrading satellite does not change my need (or lack thereof) for a HTTP Proxy, so that setting should carry over as part of the upgrade process.
- Satellite 5.4, upgraded from Satellite 5.3
