Description David Kovalsky 2008-04-21 08:48:49 EDT
Fire up rhn_register GUI, go all the way to enter username and password. If you
enter an existing user you get a correct message saying that the password didn't
correspond to the valid RHN account (fixed bug 216959).

If you enter an invalid user (try 'asdf' with password 'asdf' :-)) you see  
There was an error while logging in.
This error shouldn't have happened. If you'd like to help us improve this
program, please file a bug at
bugzilla.redhat.com. Including the relevant parts of '/var/log/up2date' would be
very helpful. Thanks!

This is misleading making that user think there's a problem in connecting to
ther RHN server itself.

[root@kovy ~]# rpm -qf `which rhn_register`

Comment 3 Sayli Karmarkar 2008-08-07 15:09:38 EDT
It seems to be fixed in 5.2. I could see same error "The username and/or password you entered does not correspond to a valid RHN account. Please verify the username and password and try again." in gui window even when I put invalid username.

Version numbers: 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.2 (Tikanga)
