Comment 1 Jesus M. Rodriguez 2010-08-20 16:13:00 EDT
The only way to fix this is to store off the uuid when the register occurs. That way in the event of a corrupt or missing identity certificate, we can register with the old uuid and maintain our subscriptions.
Comment 2 Jesus M. Rodriguez 2010-08-25 15:53:52 EDT
added --consumerid param to reregister

fixed by commits:

[root@jsefler-rhel6-client01 ~]# rpm -q subscription-manager

[root@jsefler-rhel6-client01 ~]# subscription-manager-cli unregister
This system is currently not registered.
[root@jsefler-rhel6-client01 ~]# subscription-manager-cli register --username=admin --pass=admin

[root@jsefler-rhel6-client01 ~]# subscription-manager-cli subscribe --pool=1
[root@jsefler-rhel6-client01 ~]# ls /etc/pki/entitlement/product/

[root@jsefler-rhel6-client01 ~]# subscription-manager-cli reregister
7c6d0aac-4cb2-4257-9ea5-748cbc32146d admin
[root@jsefler-rhel6-client01 ~]# rm /etc/pki/consumer/cert.pem 
rm: remove regular file `/etc/pki/consumer/cert.pem'? y
[root@jsefler-rhel6-client01 ~]# rm /etc/pki/entitlement/product/*.pem
rm: remove regular file `/etc/pki/entitlement/product/15.pem'? y

[root@jsefler-rhel6-client01 ~]# subscription-manager-cli reregister --help
Usage: subscription-manager-cli reregister [OPTIONS]

re-register the client to a Unified Entitlement Platform.

  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --debug=DEBUG         debug level
  --username=USERNAME   specify a username
  --password=PASSWORD   specify a password
                        register to an existing consumer
[root@jsefler-rhel6-client01 ~]# subscription-manager-cli reregister --consumerid=7c6d0aac-4cb2-4257-9ea5-748cbc32146d --username=admin --pass=admin
7c6d0aac-4cb2-4257-9ea5-748cbc32146d admin

VERIFIED: ^^^ Notice that the reregister with the consumerid option returns the same cert hash
Now wait for the rhsmcertd refresh frequency (certFrequency=1) minutes and then...

[root@jsefler-rhel6-client01 ~]# ls /etc/pki/entitlement/product/

VERIFIED: ^^^ The product cert is re-dropped

moving to VERIFIED...
