Description Jaskaran Singh Narula 2021-01-25 11:26:44 UTC
Description of problem:
When trying to re-register a system using the generated curl command it throws the error mentioning that the system is already registered and it would need to use the option --force. 

This system is already registered. Use --force to override

When --force option is using the below error is the output. 

[root@localhost ~]# curl -X GET "https://satellite.example.com:9090/register?activation_key=new&hostgroup_id=3&location_id=2&operatingsystem_id=3&organization_id=1" -H 'Authorization: Bearer eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJ1c2VyX2lkIjo0LCJpYXQiOjE2MTE1Njk4ODEsImp0aSI6ImUxMzJkOGU1OGQ2MTc4YTc4ODM3ZjU2ZjY0MzJiZmZhYTZjYmI2OWY0ODFmMGFiYmFjNTJkOGZhZWVlN2JjMDMiLCJleHAiOjE2MTE1ODQyODF9.fLNNZqN_7HNYFcCyspX6Usqt6AN3u5oOUA3DIdEB6Pk' | bash --force
bash: --force: invalid option

	bash [GNU long option] [option] script-file ...
GNU long options:
Shell options:
	-ilrsD or -c command or -O shopt_option		(invocation only)
	-abefhkmnptuvxBCHP or -o option

curl: (23) Failed writing body (0 != 10369)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i satellite 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Register a client system using the generated curl command 
2. Do NOT un-register the system and then run the same curl command again. It will ask to use the --force option. 
3. Run the same curl command with the --force option. 

Actual results:
Do not register the system the second time. 

Expected results:
[1] It should use the option or --force 
[2] Curl command should process any additional parameters supported for subscription-manager.

Created redmine issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/31810 from this bug

I'd say better approach to re-registration would be to run sub-man clean, overall feels like a duplicate of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1900664
