Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 199477
Too many systems registered using this registration token
Last modified: 2007-07-31 16:10:38 EDT
Description of problem:
I've setup an unlimited activation key on the satellite server. The kickstart
file uses this key when installing the system onto the machine. The system does
not properly register with the satellite server because both in the ks-post.log
file and when I try to manually register using up2date --register I get this
message if I try to use an existing active subscription:
Problem registering system:
Maximum usage count of 10 reached
Error Class Code: 61
Error Class Info: Too many systems registered using this registration token
An error has occurred while processing your request. If this problem
persists please enter a bug report at bugzilla.redhat.com.
If you choose to submit the bug report, please be sure to include
details of what you were trying to do when this error occurred and
details on how to reproduce this problem.
In any case only 1 other system is using the activation key.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 4 AS U3 x86_64 client + Satellite Server 4.05
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the system using the kickstart using an unlimited activation key
2. The system doesn't automatically register itself with the satellite server so
try up2date --register .
3. Try using an already active subscription and the error message appears
Error message appears
System name should register in the satellite server along with hardware
information rather than just as "unknown" system.
Another annoying thing is that up2date closes itself after this error message.
It should allow the user to try again or go back to enter the login information
I used up all the monitoring licenses on the remote server. The unlimited keys
were only for management and provisioning. Marking as resolved notabug.
