Problem running up2date on clone channel after sync to rhn.
We are trying to create an environment on our satellite server that will allow us to freeze a channel for patching. When we're ready to patch we clone a primary channel and point the server that's being update to it. We publish all the errata and assigned them to the cloned channel. Since we run our sync to red hat weekly, the primary and clone channels differ, which is no big deal. However, when we run up2date we get the following error on several packages:
If we point the server back to the primary channel the update works fine.
so my questions are:
1) Should we use channel cloning for this purpose?
2) Is there a better way to freeze a channel.
