Satellite Certificate getting escaped causing Parsing errors
Last modified: 2007-06-25 23:04:12 EDT
Description of problem:
If you copy paste a satellite certificate into CertificateConfig you will always
end up getting Certificate Parse exception even for valid satellite certificates...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a satellite
2. Go to the admin url and Login as admin
3. Select Satellite Tools -> Satellite Configuration -> Certificate
4. Copy the contents of a cert from
and paste it at the text area next to "Certificate Text: *"
Error ->"Could not parse certificate file" with the xml contents escaped, ie
"<xml version>" appears as "xml version" no <, >
Certificate Parsed successfully.
This is related to the fact that we scrub <,>, fields by default to prevent
cross site scripting.. In this case that won't be an issue because the sat cert
content has to be in a specific format for this to function..
This has been resolved for a while now..
Certificate uploaded. Satellite has been re-activated.
works fine in stage.
Closed for Satellite 500 Release.
