Description Pavel Studeník 2017-02-01 15:01:23 UTC
Description of problem:
From Satellite 5.8 is used manifest for activation Satellite. But when I try to activate expired manifest I received message with term 'certificate':

For example:

>> rhn-satellite-activate
ERROR: Satellite Certificate appears to have expired: 2017-01-16

On web UI:
Your satellite certificate has expired. Please visit the following link for steps on how to request or generate a new certificate: https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/tools/satcert Your satellite enters restricted period in 5 day(s).

I think that it is confusing for user what is manifest and what is certificate. I prefer to use only one term "manifest".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. used expired manifest for activation

Actual results:
The term "certificate" is used

Expected results:
Use the word manifest

Additional info:
>> git grep -i "Satellite Certificate"

Comment 1 Pavel Studeník 2017-02-01 15:07:42 UTC
On page /rhn/admin/config/ManifestUpload.do I uploaded expired manifest and I receive error: "Certificate expired". Correct message is "Manifest expired".

Comment 3 Grant Gainey 2017-02-09 15:39:39 UTC
The 'thing' that's expired, in this case, *is* the Satellite Certificate, that is embedded in the manifest.zip.

Manifests do not expire. The subscriptions inside them may, but the mainfest itself is just a container of Stuff.

I think that changing this wording is likely to cause more confusion for Sat5 customers, than leaving it alone does. I am proposing to close this as WONTFIX

Comment 4 Tomas Lestach 2017-02-09 16:35:05 UTC
I agree we need to distinguish, what actually within the manifest expired.
Based on Comment 2 I'm closing the bug WONTFIX.
