The bug still exits on RHEL-7.4-20170330.n.1 with 'yum-3.4.3-154.el7.noarch' when run "yum" and "subscription-manager".

I don't know if this is a useful or new data point, but I just kickstarted a system using 'fips=1' from the get-go and did not encounter this issue. However, with systems built without fips mode and transitioned later it does occur.

IMHO the message should be printed in debug mode only.
Comment 8 Brad Viviano 2017-08-03 07:22:15 EDT
After upgrading to RHEL 7.4 with FIPS enabled I am now getting a nightly email from cron because of /etc/cron.daily/rhsmd on all of my RHEL 7.4 systems about:

Checksum type 'md5' disabled

This should be fixed in /usr/libexec/rhsmd or /etc/cron.daily/rhsmd should do something useful with the output, instead of me getting one message per system per day about this.
