Message And your release for RHEL 4 ES should be "4ES". "4AS" matches RHEL 4
AS as "3WS" matches RHEL 3 WS.

Message You created your channel with an invaild arch string. You used
"IA-32" where you need to use "i386"

Ex:

    # cadmin create_channel --name "Red Hat 7.2" --label rhl7.2 --arch i386 \
        --release 7.2 --description "Red Hat Linux version 7.2"

The value for arch must match what RPM believes is the base arch for
the system. So for ia32/i686 machines that's "i386". For EM64t or
Opterons use "x86_64".

Also, your log file has some exceptions logged in it that shouldn't
happen. Current deletes all the files in the CURRENT_DIR and then
re-creates the needed links and files. When Current is creating the
links for you its getting "[Errno 17] File exists" errors. You may
want to delete all the files in CURRENT_DIR/www/CHAN​NEL/getPackage/
and then rescan the channel.

Message hi
up2date give me a an error: "No compatible channels found for client"

to make the channel what i did was to get as much data as i could from this
page: https://rhn.redhat.c​om/network/software/​channels/details.pxt​?cid=2866

the client and server are the same machine: cat /etc/redhat-release shows
its rhel 4 update 1.
so i populated the database with rpms for rehel 4 for then 4 update 1 then
4update 2 and still no compatible channels found for client

this is what is in mysql db:
mysql> select * from CHANNEL; select * from CHANNEL_DIR; select count(*)
from RPM;
+------------+------​------------+-------​--------------------​--+----------------+​-------+-----------+​--------------------​--------------------​-----------+--------​--------+
