Description R P Herrold 2002-05-11 00:25:32 UTC
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
Traceback (innermost last):

ugh, uhmm.. off hand, no clue... I'll dig deeper and see
if I find anything.

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2002-05-19 12:25:48 UTC
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.

Comment 3 R P Herrold 2002-05-21 00:20:39 UTC
 straight installer upgrade from CD boot ... text mode
