Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 508372
Providing an empty profile name during registration causes an ISE
Last modified: 2013-01-10 05:04:10 EST
If you set your profile name to empty in rhn_register, then during the registration phase when RHN is creating your server entry in the db, an ISE will occur.
Verified in webdev.
Steps to Recreate:
1. Ssh to firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Tail the logs at /var/log/httpd/error_log
3. Ssh to a machine (ie. fjs-0-08.rhndev.redhat.com)
4. Run rhn_register
5. Make the profile name field blank
6. Complete the registration
For rhel 5, registration completes successfully and the system is displayed under recently registered systems with the system name "Unknown". No ISE error is displayed in the error_log file.
For rhel 4, error class code 21 is displayed. Registration does not complete successfully. The system is not displayed under recently registered systems. No ISE error is displayed in the error_log file.
A new bug/user story will be created to make rhel 5 consistent with rhel 4 (error class code 21).
