Thanks for your reply, I think you are right Satellite-sync does not seem to run iss at all. satellite-sync -l --iss-parent=apinfssw011 19:35:14 Red Hat Network Satellite - live synchronization 19:35:14 url: https://apinfssw011.prod.f2.com.au 19:35:14 debug/output level: 1 19:35:14 19:35:14 ERROR: there was a problem synchronizing the information. Error message: ERROR: this server must be registered with RHN. There doesn't seem to be anything writing to any of the logs in /var/log/httpd/* and I can't seem to find anything in any of the logs in /var/log/rhn either, unless they are in another place? Also, I have attached rhn_server_iss.conf and rhn.conf files and hopefully you can see an error. Any help would be great. thanks Johnnym -----Original Message----- From: Miroslav Suchý [mailto:msuchy redhat com] Sent: Tuesday, 9 March 2010 7:57 PM To: spacewalk-list redhat com Cc: Johnny Mirza Subject: Re: [Spacewalk-list] another satellite-sync question On 03/09/2010 04:44 AM, Johnny Mirza wrote: > Hi, > > I have been successfully using spacewalk for a few months now but the > server it is running on is a staging server. > > I have built a new server and wanted to use satellite-sync to sync to > the new server but I have been having issues and can't seem to find out > how to get it work. > > These are the guides that I'm using. > > http://www.mail-archive.com/spacewalk-devel redhat com/msg00147.html > > https://fedorahosted.org/spacewalk/wiki/InterSpacewalkServerSync > > when running satellite-sync --iss-parent=masterserver -l, I get the > below error > > ERROR: there was a problem synchronizing the information. > > Error message: ERROR: this server must be registered with RHN. It is strange. It seems that satellite-sync is not doing ISS at all, but trying normal sync from hosted. You must have it misconfigured. Can you check on you master httpd logs if slave is trying to connect to master. I doubt. If you want more help,I would need /etc/rhn/default/rhn_server_iss.conf and /etc/rhn/rhn.conf from master. -- Miroslav Suchy Red Hat Satellite Engineering The information contained in this e-mail message and any accompanying files is or may be confidential.
