unable to clear host from Katello via rake tasks after host is deleted in candlepin
Cloned from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1354555
Description of problem:
If you delete a candlepin consumer without deleting the katello record, the katello record does not disappear after running "foreman-rake katello:clean_backend_objects".
This bug is a less severe bug related to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1271500.
QE note: in the wild, this bug would normally occur if systems were being modified while a satellite was rebooted (see original bz). However, there are some "fake" steps to induce an out-of-sync condition that we can use to replicate this scenario more easily.
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. induce a situation where candlepin and katello are out of sync. For purposes of this bug, the best way is to register a Satellite to itself, then delete the host record in candlepin.
- set up a sat6, register system to itself
- edit /etc/candlepin/candlepin.conf: ** comment out "module.config.adapter_module=org.candlepin.katello.KatelloModule" ** change "candlepin.auth.basic.enable=false" to true
- restart tomcat
- run "curl -k https://localhost:8443/candlepin/admin/init" to create candlepin admin user
- run "curl -k -u admin:admin https://localhost:8443/candlepin/consumers/" to grab the UUID of the consumer to delete
- run "curl -k -u admin:admin -X DELETE 'https://localhost:8443/candlepin/consumers/<UUID>'"
- undo your changes to candlepin.conf
- katello-service restart
- ensure that web UI is not totally broken. It is OK if an error is raised when viewing details for the particular deleted host, but "content hosts" list should work still.
- run "foreman-rake katello:clean_backend_objects"
[root@sat-snap-rhel7 ~]# foreman-rake katello:clean_backend_objects
System 1 sat-snap-rhel7.example.com 5a29a0a1-62f2-48f8-bc52-c94534832c02 is partially missing. Cleaning.
Actual results: system still shows up in katello web UI
Expected results: system should disappear from katello web UI
note: katello:reindex does not seem to help either
