Description Matt Domsch 2004-09-29 08:40:53 EDT
Description of problem:
As essentially a standalone program, validate-sat-cert uses the
http_proxy and https_proxy environment variables for its --send
option, where I would have expected it to use /etc/rhn/rhn.conf for my
authenticating proxy settings found there.  The use of http_proxy does
not allow it to use an authenticating proxy, which my environment

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set http_proxy and https_proxy
2. validate-sat-cert --send fails
Comment 1 Chip Turner 2004-09-29 13:37:07 EDT
--send is depracated in satellite 3.4 and isn't listed in the man
page.  instead you should update your sat cert in the hosted
environment and run 'satellite-sync' to pull the change down.  --send
was present in older releases and is honored as a depracated option
but shouldn't be used (for largely the issue you point up -- less than
robust handling of proxies)
