Updated spacewalk-backend, spacewalk-java, spacewalk-utils, satellite-schema andspacewalk-schema packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements arenow available for Red Hat Satellite 5.7.
Red Hat Satellite is a systems management tool for Linux-based infrastructure.It allows for provisioning, remote management, and monitoring of multiple Linuxdeployments with a single centralized tool.This update fixes the following bugs:* Prior to this update, uploading a kickstart-profile generated by anaconda onRed Hat Enterprise Linux 6 resulted in a warning message, “This kickstartprofile uses a different type of encryption by default than the root password iscurrently using. You must reset the root password to encrypt it with the newmethod.” Satellite now understands sha512-hashed passwords, and the warning nolonger appears. (BZ#1122422)* Prior to this update, the “Inactive Systems” page sorted ‘Last Checked In’alphabetically instead of using time order.

This has been fixed and the sort nowbehaves correctly. (BZ#1124809)* Prior to this update, the performance characteristics ofspacewalk-clone-by-date on a Satellite using a PostgreSQL database graduallydeteriorated over time, before suddenly resetting back to more acceptablelevels.

This update adds several tuning-hints to the rhnChannelPackage tablethat allows the PostgreSQL query-analyzer to keep up with rapid changes to thattable, allowing the tool’s performance to remain at a consistent acceptablelevel. (BZ#1297610)* Prior to this update, spacewalk-clone-by-date sometimes got stuck in arecursion dependency-checking loop until it failed.

This bug fixes the rootcause of the problem. (BZ#1331023)* Prior to this update, attempting to modify a kickstart URL using thekickstart.profile.setAdvancedOptions command would be ignored.

This has beenfixed. (BZ#1356173)* In a previous erratum, changes were introduced in an attempt to boost thetool’s performance.

The performance gain was minor at best, and the changessometimes resulted in incomplete package-lists being copied to the clonedchannel.

This change has been reverted. (BZ#1367915)* In a previous erratum, spacewalk-clone-by-date was modified to allow it tocopy only specific RPMs when required for dependency-resolution, instead ofrequiring the cloning of the entire erratum that delivered those RPMs.

This ledto a variety of subtle dependency-resolution failures in cloned channels.

Thischange has been reverted. (BZ#1369185)* This update enhances the output of spacewalk-clone-by-date to include asummary of any errata cloned for dependency resolution, as well as cleaning upand clarifying the log output sent to /var/log/errata-clone.log. (BZ#1369888)* With this update, a user’s timezone and browser locale have been added to thedata gathered by spacewalk-debug as an aid to problem determination.(BZ#1372721)* With this update, a variety of typos and grammar mistakes were fixed in thespacewalk-clone-by-date manual page. (BZ#1382272)Users of Red Hat Satellite are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
Application of this errata involves updating the database schema.For general instructions on the database schema upgrade, consult the followingdocument first: https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/273633Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevantto your system have been applied.

To apply this erratum, take the followingsteps:* Shut down Red Hat Satellite by running the following command as root:rhn-satellite stop* Backup the database.

For embedded or managed database variants, please consultRed Hat Satellite 5.6 documentation.

For an external database, consult yourdatabase administrator.* Upgrade the errata packages.

Details on how to apply this update are availableat https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258* Update the database schema using the spacewalk-schema-upgrade command.

To doso, run as root:spacewalk-schema-upgradeThis process will update your database schema to the latest version.

Thespacewalk-schema-upgrade command will inform you about the results of theupgrade and exact locations of schema upgrade log files.* Restart Red Hat Satellite by running the following as root:rhn-satellite startRed Hat Satellite (v. 5.7 for RHEL 6)
