Weird bogus error message
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:50:24 EST
On stock beta3, when I run rhn_register, it reports:
A protocol error occured: Internal Server Error , attempt #1
A protocol error occured: Internal Server Error , attempt #2
on STDOUT. However, it appears to have registered correctly since I am
then allowed to up2date....
In case it helps hunt down the session which generated this, I registered a
system called station11 at ~12:30 pm MDT. The username and email for it
I'll take a look at the server logs on beta and see what pops up.
Typically, we retried socket and server related errors 5 times before
failing, so just having two errors would seem to indicate a transient
failure. Could of been db issues (were currently doing lots of odd
things to that db, and internal server errors are a pretty typical
results of that...)
Hopefully the db issues will quite down soon, so I can be more sure
of this kind of errors.
This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
Have you seen this happen again since?
The code is designed to be resilent to temporary network errors,
which appears to be the case here.
I haven't seen it again
Closing this out then.
