Description Panic 2000-09-26 11:18:59 EDT
There is no selection in Bugzilla under "Red Hat Web Site" to submit
problems with RHN registration, logins, etc.

The instructions at the above URL are wrong:

the /etc/rhnsd directory does not exist by default (on my system at least).
why in the hell do I have to manually rename the file and move it over?
the command you should have given for setting the service to "on" is:

chkconfig --level 345 rhnsd on

the "config" command does not exist.

More -- the Your Network site did not display the profile that I created.  To
state the obvious, it looks like the RHN servers are not communicating with the
www.redhat.com/network site.
Comment 2 Panic 2000-09-26 13:36:11 EDT
It appears that the on-system client places the systemid file in
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid -- shouldn't the web client do the same thing?
Comment 3 Panic 2000-09-26 14:13:07 EDT
saw the fix -- but it's still wrong. :)

you've got /etc/sysconfig/rhns/systemid, and it should be:


Also noticed that when a user switchs to the secure server, the link "Switch to
a secure server" is still on the page -- the pages are exactly the same, and its
a little confusing.
Comment 4 Paul Lindner 2000-09-26 19:49:37 EDT
There is a hidden category for RHNS (separate from web site)

I fixed the path.

Secure server switching should be fixed..
