Re: [Pulp-list] Issues with Pulp

Hi Claer,

I don't know the answers to all of your questions, but I have quoted a few below that I will respond to in line.

There are certainly some improvements that we can make to our CLI. In the meantime, there is another log that often contains useful information on the server at /var/log/pulp/pulp.log. I agree that it's not the friendliest to the user, but for now I'd recommend checking that log as well when you encounter problems.

- How can I list all schedules?

I don't believe there is a way to list all schedules across all repositories in the CLI. However, you can list the schedules that pertain to syncing a particular repository with this command:

$ pulp-admin rpm repo sync schedules list --repo-id <your_repo_id_here>

- Copying rpm of erratas form a repository to another leads to no RPM in the
  destination directory :

# pulp-admin rpm repo create --repo-id "RHEL5-updates-x86_64" --feed=https://cdn.redhat.com/content/dist/rhel/server/5/5Server/x86_64/os --relative-url=RHEL5-updates-x86_64 --proxy-url= --proxy-port=8080 --feed-ca-cert=/etc/rhsm/ca/redhat-uep.pem --feed-cert=/etc/pki/entitlement/1111111111111111111.pem --feed-key=/etc/pki/entitlement/1111111111111111111-key.pem
# pulp-admin rpm repo sync run --repo-id "RHEL5-updates-x86_64"
# pulp-admin rpm repo create --repo-id RHEL5-security-updates-x86_64 --relative-url=RHEL5-security-updates-x86_64 # pulp-admin rpm repo copy errata --copy-children true --from-repo-id RHEL5-updates-x86_64 --to-repo-id RHEL5-security-updates-x86_64

There is a --recursive flag that you should pass to the copy command. I think this is has been a stumbling block for other users as well, so perhaps we should consider making the recursive flag default to true.

- schedule a publishing
  # pulp-admin rpm repo publish schedules not available

The backend does support publish scheduling, but our CLI does not yet have support for it. It's on our backlog. If you need this functionality, it is possible to write your own script to schedule publishing through our API.

- after updating a repo for --serve-http(s) true|false you need to publish it,
  even with autopublish

The autopublish flag only applies to the sync operation - perhaps we could be more clear about that in our documentation and help texts.

Shall I switch to beta pulp to be able to solve some or all issues I'm getting ?
Did I misunderstood something?

I skipped a lot of your questions about consumer groups because I am not personally familiar with our features in that area. However, I do believe our upcoming 2.2.0 release will have a lot of improvements in this area. I'll let someone else from the team comment about that, but if you are willing to try out our beta release you might find better support in that area.

Thanks for checking out Pulp, and I hope I was able to help you!
