Description Ivan Necas 2011-09-14 14:38:34 UTC
See Katello BZ (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=736482)

When providing invalid credentials while system registration using subscription-manager against katello, there is an error:
 ERROR: Server does not support environments.

Expected result:
 Invalid Credentials

The problem is, subscription-manager tries to find out whether server supports environments, but doesn't checks if the request to katello was successful (katello returns 401 Unauthorized).
