Description of problem:
Error Class Code: 9
Error Class Info:Invalid Server Certificate
This is the only thing that happens when I try to run this program.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Simply trying to run the program gets the error.
That error indicates that the systemid you have in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid
is not valid for the server you are talking to.
I havent seen this in a long time (not since we still ran a beta rhn server
almost 8 months ago....), as register to one server (say, beta.rhns..)
and then having up2date talk to another server (say, www.rhns.redhat.com) can
Best approach is to verify that both rhn_register and up2date are configure
to talk to the right server (both should be configured to talk to
https://www.rhns.redhat.com/XMLRPC ). And then reregister the system.
First make sure that the machine is pointing to the right server,
up2date --configure --nox
and check that noSSLServerURL and serverURL look like the following:
If that's OK, you'll need to re-register the box if you haven't already, and
your entitlement to the new profile.
as root. Click "Yes" if you get the dialog message about the system already
Once the system is registered, log in at http://rhn.redhat.com , click on
"Entitlements" on the left, and then move the entitlement from the old
system to the new system. Then click on "Update Entitlements" at the bottom.
To delete the old profile altogether from the Entitlements page, click on
the name of the system in the Entitled systems list. At the bottom of the
page, below the details information, is the Delete System Profile button.
Clicking that will prompt for confirmation that you really want to delete
the profile then remove it from your account.
