I have this problem too. I am using an updated kernel from rawhide.
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2001-11-13 18:59:02 EST
Invalid server certificate almost always indicates that the client is
pointing at the wrong server.

Were these updates from beta releases?

Verify that the "serverURL" config setting is 

in both:

Comment 3 Jan Rossmann 2001-11-14 01:59:23 EST
I checked the Server config.
Originally I had noSSLServerURL=http://www.rhns.redhat.com/XMLRPC/
I changed it to SSLServerURL=https://www.rhns.redhat.com/XMLRPC

but I still get the same result.

Im using a Proxy, could that cause the problem?
Comment 4 Adrian Likins 2002-03-26 19:04:37 EST
If your using a http proxy, you need to configure it.

If your still getting invalid server certificate issues, more
than likely you have an improper cert. Perhaps one registered
against the beta servers?
Comment 5 Jan Rossmann 2002-03-27 03:22:58 EST
I tried also without the proxy, with the same result.
If I registered with the beta servers, how do I remove the certificate, so that I can connect agin?
Comment 6 Adrian Likins 2002-03-27 10:08:03 EST
You will need to rerun rhn_register and register with the live
site, or copy over the original systemsid if you still have it.
