Description James Bowes 2010-04-30 15:19:37 EDT
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.
Comment 2 Bryan Kearney 2010-08-03 16:49:41 EDT
THis is fixed with the new secure/insecure mode.
