Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 465191
RHN Satellite 5.1.1 - Initial Admin Login Fails
Last modified: 2008-12-16 15:41:24 EST
Description of problem:
Fail to login using the newly created Satellite admin account to continue the configuration. Tried resetting the password and used the new password emailed by Satellite. Even tried reinstalling the DB and repopulating the schema.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL AS 4.6
Satellite 5.1.1-28 (x86_64-4) with embedded Oracle
1. Install RHN Satellite 5.1.1.
2. Create new admin account using the web interface post install.
3. Try to login using the admin account to continue the configuration.
After successful login, it throws back the login prompt again.
After successful login, it should continue with the Satellite configuration.
Hi - is this still an issue for you?
If so, please contact the Red Hat support team for further assistance.
To me, this sounds like a fairly common issue where a Satellite is not installed with a fully qualified hostname, and/or that hostname is not used within the browser for login, or usage of say localhost/127.0.0.1 to try to login.
Please make sure your Satellite is installed on a server with a hostname with formatting of:
and you then use this fully qualified domain/hostname to login with.
If on further assistance from support they confirm a bug within the product, they will associate the ticket with the bugzilla report.
