rhn-ssl-cert-check doesn't recognise traceback_mail setting in /etc/rhn/rhn.conf

Description of problem:
"Unable to read the admin e-mail address in /etc/rhn/rhn.conf
To disable monitoring, add CHECK=no in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhn-ssl-cert-check
Otherwise, you will have to add a valid email address to receive
expiration notifications, either in /etc/rhn/rhn.conf (traceback_mail)
or set ADMIN in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhn-ssl-cert-check
even when traceback_mail is correctly set in /etc/rhn/rhn.conf
Every time on an rhn-proxy system. I can't check, but I assume this wouldn't be
reproducible on a satellite.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set traceback_mail in /etc/rhn/rhn.conf and ensure ADMIN is not set in
2. Run /etc/cron.daily/rhn-ssl-cert-check
Error shown above
It seems that the cause of the problem is in the script rhn-ssl-cert-check in
the method get_rhn_component (copied below), the check is for rhn-proxy-broker.
This package does not exist -- it is called rhns-proxy-broker.
# Identify the RHN component
if rpm -q rhn-proxy-broker >& /dev/null; then
elif rpm -q rhns-satellite-tools >& /dev/null; then
Indeed, the bug is there and change from rhn-proxy-broker to rhns-proxy-broker
will fix it. Commited into trunk (rev. 115731).
The package was not build before last push. I build it and we'll need to wait
for next QA push.
On a second look I need to confirm the steps before I verify it. Putting it back
On a proxy system:
[root@newman ~]# sh /etc/cron.daily/rhn-ssl-cert-check
Moving to release pending.
Closed for Satellite 500 Release.
