Description terry.turner 2005-10-10 12:31:49 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
Matt Davis of Red Hat found that the "--sslCACert" switch of "rhnreg_ks" is buggy:
[root@erdos rhn]# cat up2date | grep sslCACert=
[root@erdos rhn]# /usr/sbin/rhnreg_ks --activationkey <###> --noSSLServerURL http://rhn.gatech.edu/XMLRPC --sslCACert /usr/share/rhn/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT --serverUrl https://rhn.gatech.edu/XMLRPC
[root@erdos rhn]# cat up2date | grep sslCACert= sslCACert=/usr/share/rhn/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT;
[root@erdos rhn]#                                ^
                           (Notice the semicolon at the end of the pathname.)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Register a client with the satellite using the "--sslCACert" switch of
2. cat /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date | grep sslCACert=
3. Notice the semicolon at the end of the sslCACert pathname.

Actual Results:  /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date was incorrectly modified as follows:


(Notice the semicolon at the end of the pathname.)

Expected Results:  sslCACert=/usr/share/rhn/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT

(No semicolon at the end of the pathname above in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date .)

Additional info:

This bug was first noticed because rhn-applet-gui could not connect to the
satellite server. (Other config files got corrupted because of this uber-bug.)
