in our master-slave setup, syncing channels fails for some channels with the following error:
+++ sending log as an email +++ SYNC ERROR: unhandled exception occurred: (Check logs/email for potentially more detail) EOFError()
After removing /var/cache/rhn/satsync/* it succeeds.
Case closed ? Saldy no.
Now other channels (that did work before) fail with the following error:
Importing: +++ sending log as an email +++ SYNC ERROR: unhandled exception occurred: (Check logs/email for potentially more detail) UnicodeDecodeError('ascii', 'ERROR: Encountered IntegrityError: \ FEHLER: doppelter Schl\\xc3\\xbcsselwert verletzt Unique-Constraint \\xc2\\xbbrhn_package_id_pk\\xc2\\xab\ DETAIL: Schl\\xc3\\xbcssel \\xc2\\xbb(id)=(36931)\\xc2\\xab existiert bereits.\ \ consider removing satellite-sync cache at /var/cache/rhn/satsync/* and re-run satellite-sync with same options.\ If this error persits after removing cache, please contact Red Hat support.', 59, 60, 'ordinal not in range(128)') 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 59: ordinal not in range(128)
It does not help to remove /var/cache/rhn/satsync/* again
The error message is partly in german. It says: Duplicate key word violates Unique-Constraint rhn_package_id. Key (id)=(36931) already exists.
