Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 251910
something in rhnUser.py isn't writing email addresses to user service
Last modified: 2013-01-10 04:13:10 EST
Description of problem:
People who try to retrieve a lost password through UGC will occasionally get an
exception because they have no email address in LDAP. I think something in
rhnUser.py is killing the email address, and a few other fields. I'm assuming
this because the "Notes" field in the bad LDAP entries contains "Entry created
by RHN registration process".
Let me know if you need more info.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): current
I poked around at this, and the reason this happens is because the client side
programs do not require an email address when creating a new user.
So if this is to be fixed, it will need a new bug opened for the rhel client
tools. Closing for now.
