Description spark 2007-03-30 11:59:59 UTC
Description of problem:
rhn-ssl-cert-check returns:

"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

How reproducible:
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
Actual results:
Error shown above

Expected results:
No error

Additional info:
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.

get_rhn_component() {

    # Identify the RHN component

    if rpm -q rhn-proxy-broker >& /dev/null; then

        echo "proxy.broker"


    elif  rpm -q rhns-satellite-tools >& /dev/null; then

        echo "server.satellite"

Indeed, the bug is there and change from rhn-proxy-broker to rhns-proxy-broker
will fix it. Commited into trunk (rev. 115731).

Comment 3 Miroslav Suchý 2007-05-04 08:05:47 UTC
The package was not build before last push. I build it and we'll need to wait
for next QA push.

Comment 4 Miroslav Suchý 2007-05-09 08:04:01 UTC
moving ON_QA.

Comment 7 Preethi Thomas 2007-05-21 18:47:44 UTC
On a second look I need to confirm the steps before I verify it. Putting it back
to on_qa

Comment 9 Devan Goodwin 2007-06-20 20:25:05 UTC
On a proxy system:

[root@newman ~]# sh /etc/cron.daily/rhn-ssl-cert-check
[root@newman ~]# 

Moving to release pending.
