Description Satyabrata Maitra 2013-10-25 04:04:13 EDT
Description of problem:
If the system already registered with RHN Classic, and user opening subscription-manager-gui, the "Register" button should be disabled until the system is getting uregistered from RHN Classic.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Register rhsm with RHN Classic as :
   In terminal(with superuser) create a file /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid
   Append line sudo touch /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid into that file. save and 
2. Open rhsm gui either from menu or typing subscription-manager-gui in console 
   or run application dialog box.
3. Observe the rhsm-main page appearing the "Register" button enabled.

Actual results:
Although even if user click on "Register" button, it throws some message and restrict user to proceed further, still this restriction can be implemented simply disabling the "Register" button, handling the exception in easier way.

Expected results:
"Register" button should be disable once system is already registered with RHN Classic

There may be valid cases for dual registration. I would prefer to document and warn then to disable.

Hi Bryan

Once it is registered with RHN classic does the current system at all allows to register even with other login credential if not the same one, in rhsm gui for dual registration?
