We now use Red Hat Satellite 6.3 and have it synchronizing to
Recent updates to munin-node and munin-common require conntrack-tools x86_64
The conntrack-tools x86_64 0.9.13-3.el6 was release in May 2014, based on rpm -qip, and
is in our synchronized EPEL content view on our Satellite.
We use content view date filters to only select errata (patches) up to a specific date
(based on our patch cycle) and publish new content views based on said dates. We stumbled
upon the issue that the conntrack-tools x86_64 0.9.13-3.el6 package not being included in
the content view, even though it existed in the repository, and our date based content
filter should have encompassed the release date of the package. This caused yum update to
fail for the munin updates, as the prerequisite could not be satisfied.
Curious if there is indeed something amiss with this packages metadata, and also if other
EPEL packages suffer the same fate. We are concerned that we will not be able to rely on
the veracity of EPEL packages and will have to mitigate this in some fashion.
