The "Back" button is now greyed out so I cannot go back as the original comment
says. Is that the fix for this?
I'm trying to test this, but I don't see the back button grayed out. Cameron,
what version where you using?
i think this is on qa?
Sure it was. I switched purposely to NEEDINFO to get more information from
Cameron who has tested the bug, since I'm getting different testing results.
I did not have luck with reproducing this with old version from RHEL-5.0
(rhn-client-tools-0.4.13-1.el5) nor one from 5.1, guess something changed on the
server side but that's not that important.
I do this scenarios with latest revision 0.4.17-8:
login in TUI app via my personal account and pass to RHN, I see screen that I
have no active subscription, which is OK, I hit back, issue QE login, with
unlimited amount of subscriptions and hit next, it logs me into, but I got the
"no active subscription" again.
Justin, is this the reported bug, or is it a new one?
Doing this in reverse order, QE credentials and then personal one gives me
expected results, of no no active subscription.
hrm, that seems to be a new bug actually...
opened up bz 442930 and proposed for 5.3 as it does not seem to be a blocker.
Jesus, do you know what version of rhn-client-tools was the affected? When did
you seen it reproducible last time?
I believe the reason you weren't able to reproduce is because EUS was not
enabled on the server. With the version of rhn-client-tools released with RHEL
5.1 you see the issue if you were connecting to hosted when it did not have EUS
