Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 106669
RHN hardware description erroneously displays 127.0.0.1 as the IP address
Last modified: 2013-02-26 19:49:42 EST
We have a machine with two network interfaces, eth0 and eth1.
The problem is that the RHN web interface seems to be unable to decide what of
the IP addresses associated with the different interfaces should be displayed as
the IP address of the machine. Instead it displays 127.0.0.1 as the IP address
of the machine.
I would suggest that the RHN hardware detection should parse what interface is
the GATEWAYDEV (in this case eth0) and use that address as the machine's IP address.

A screenshot of the problem
You can see the problem in the "IP Address" section in the upper half of this
This problem needs to be resolved within rhn_register.
Can you take a look?
Hi the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 release should have resolved this issue. I am closing this out as a duplicate of bug 457953.
