Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 64796
up2date segfaults during Migration
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:56:10 EST
Copied the registration from my backup, on a clean re-install of 7.2, followed
by a upgrade to RH 7.3 -- got this:
[root@couch root]# up2date
Migrating network settings from rhn_register

Please let me know if you need more. I an leery of uploading my
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid as an attachment.
ugh, uhmm.. off hand, no clue... I'll dig deeper and see
if I find anything.
Did you do a normal upgrade from Red Hat 7.2 to 7.3 using the installer, or
manually upgrade redhat-release then run up2date -u? The latter seems to work
in many cases, but it is untested (unsupported), and likely to cause problems in
some cases like a version downgrade or orphans leftover due to obsoletism.
straight installer upgrade from CD boot ... text mode
