Description Matt Domsch 2004-09-01 20:44:38 UTC
Description of problem:
RHN Satellite, version 3.8, allows only the Satellite Administrator 
user to create additional normal user accounts.

I'd like for individual users to be able to create their own 
accounts.  The server is on a private network, so security of these 
satellite user accounts isn't a concern.

I did this by brute force, but would appreciate a config option to 
allow such.  Also note, html/newlogin/satellite_finished.pxt needs to 
not then say "you've created an administrator account".  Perhaps a 
second finished.pxt file?

mass reassign to mmccune

Comment 2 Matt Domsch 2006-12-11 04:15:26 UTC
In addition, if the satellite is using PAM authentication, that should be a
globally enabled item, and then should not ask for a password at account
creation time, as the password won't actually be used thereafter - the
PAM-checked password will be.

Note: RHN Satellite 5.0.0 beta still has this problem, >2 years after my initial
request.

Comment 3 Matt Domsch 2008-10-29 14:23:24 UTC
giving up on this request for now.  Maybe it'll reappear in spacewalk.
