Comment 1 Steve Salevan 2009-07-06 11:24:49 EDT
Clarification: client and satellite fqdns were cut out of the original error message...  the text was not taken verbatim from the output of rhn_check.

Can't seem to reproduce this locally, waiting on a reproducer.
Comment 5 Steve Salevan 2009-07-10 10:14:52 EDT
Try as I may, I cannot reproduce this bug on any 2.1 machine.  It seems like the original issue was based on an eccentricity of my original 2.1 machine's setup, and after updating its packages, provisioning succeeded.  Moving to CLOSED, NOTABUG.
