Description of problem:

Satellite 6.1

The patch removes the limit varchar(4096) which will be released in 6.2. Can we have also a patch for the version 6.1.

foreman=# \d ptables
Table "public.ptables"
Column | Type | Modifiers
id | integer | not null default nextval('ptables_id_seq'::regclass)
name | character varying(255) | not null
layout | character varying(4096) | not null <=== it has a MAX varchar() limit on the table
created_at | timestamp without time zone | not null
updated_at | timestamp without time zone | not null
os_family | character varying(255) |

Always, it is documented in the named foreman issues:

There is also a fix that has been committed for foreman 1.8:

  • Target version set to Team Marek backlog

#2 Updated by Dominic Cleal 12 months ago

  • Status changed from New to Need more information
  • Priority changed from Urgent to Normal

Can you expand on this please? It doesn't look like an issue in Foreman still.

The ptables table hasn't existed for many releases, and both of the associated tickets are resolved - extending the size of the existing table, and later moving partition tables.
