Description Christoph Maser 2010-05-10 10:09:52 UTC
Description of problem:
if one re registers a client with rhnreg_ks the osad client auth gets invalid. to get osad to work correctly again one has to remove /etc/sysconfig/rhn/osad-auth.conf and restart osad on the client

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
osad 0:5.9.31-1.el5.noarch

Steps to Reproduce:
1. register clietn with rhnreg_ks
2. configure and run osad
3. re-register clietn with rhnreg_ks
Actual results:
osad is running but does not pick up any scheduled actions, enabling debug logs shows it can not correctly authenticate

Expected results:
osad should run and pick up scheduled actions. a fix could be that rhnreg_ks resets osad authentication when needed.

    590608 - nullify jabber_ids from previous registrations
    This fix is to ensure push functionality will be functional after
    system's re-registration.
    Couple of things adding to the problem:
    * after system re-registration, systemid changes, jabber_id stays
    * rhnPushClient table with multiple rows with identical jabber_id
      and different server_id
    * osa-dispatcher tries to find shared key for given jabber_id, backend
      simply returns the first row fetched (now with an invalid shared key)
    * signatures computed by osad and osa-dispatcher do not match -> osad
      won't do anything
    * deleting the older servers in webui won't help

The fix for the described problem landed in spacewalk-backend (server
side component) and won't require any changes on client side (osad
should work automatically).

Thank you for your bug report, sorry for the delayed fix.
