I have this problem too. I am using an updated kernel from rawhide.
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
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?
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?
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?
You will need to rerun rhn_register and register with the live
site, or copy over the original systemsid if you still have it.
