Problem with Certs generation during installation process.
Last modified: 2009-02-24 17:10:08 EST
Description of problem: Certificate that is generated during installation process is wrong and client can't use a ssl connection.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.2
How reproducible: Don't know. I've installed spacewalk, configured and tried to download the rpm with certificate. RPM successfully downloaded and installed but when I tried to use rhn tools to register client threw ssl connection it always says that the certificate is wrong.
Steps to Reproduce:
Wrong certificate. Can't use an ssl connection during client installation.
Possibility of using SSL connection while registering clients.
Additional info: none
Sounds to me like the client is looking at the wrong certfile.
Try these steps and lemme know if you still see this:
* Generate your SSL cert or use the one during install
* Once the cert is generated, move it to /usr/share/rhn/ on server(so you remember where it is)
* copy the cert over to the client under /usr/share/rhn
* edit /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date on client and include sslCACert=/usr/share/rhn/<your-cert> and serverUrl= <your-spacewalk>
* re-register and retry
This should enable the client to look for the cert in the right place. If you still have issues, please reopen the bug.
