An error occurs during the RHN registration process. After I click 'Forward' in the "Choose an update location" screen, a dialog appears stating:

This error shouldn't have happened. If you'd like to help us improve this program, please file a bug at

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 shipped it's last minor release, 5.11, on September 14th, 2014. On March 31st, 2017 RHEL 5 exited Production Phase 3 and entered Extended Life Phase. For RHEL releases in the Extended Life Phase, Red Hat  will provide limited ongoing technical support. No bug fixes, security fixes, hardware enablement or root-cause analysis will be available during this phase, and support will be provided on existing installations only.  If the customer purchases the Extended Life-cycle Support (ELS), certain critical-impact security fixes and selected urgent priority bug fixes for the last minor release will be provided.  For more details please consult the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Life Cycle Page:
