Description of problem:
1. deploy a standalone candlepin, and configure subscription manager to use it
2. run subscription-manager-cli register
(you now have /etc/pki/consumer/*.pem files)
3. redeploy your standalone candlepin, with FORCECERT=1
4. run subscription-manager-cli register --force
you'll get an ssl error.
sm sees that there's a peer cert, and loads it up for use, regardless of the command running. sm should not use the cert for a register command (just like initial registration). Alternatively, sm could detect a peer verify fail, and retry without the cert.
This will happen when switching from cert-fte to standalone, too.
Potential fix sent to prad/jortel.
THis is fixed with the new secure/insecure mode.
