Description Mirek Marciniszyn 2010-12-07 19:06:31 UTC

I am having issue when activating the RH6, here is what I am getting:

[root@vserkt467 ~]# rhnreg_ks --activationkey=677c51c9677f5c51

Error Message:
    Could not find token '677c51c9677f5c51'
Error Class Code: 60
Error Class Info: Invalid system registration token

This has, however, nothing to do with the acl package I am afraid.

Reassigning to rhn-client-tools...

Comment 3 Milan Zázrivec 2010-12-07 19:39:46 UTC
Is this registration against RHN or RHN Satellite?

Also, are you sure the activation key is correct? Activation keys
you create in RHN webui are 32 chars long. Satellite activation keys are
usually of the form: org-key (e.g. 1-afefc72b02c04a4e91f9e4ed7a305d87).

Comment 4 Mirek Marciniszyn 2010-12-07 20:03:12 UTC
This was the only number it was given to me. How to obtain the correct activation key?


Comment 5 Milan Zázrivec 2010-12-07 21:03:43 UTC
You create an activation key in RHN's webui and pass it to
rhnreg_ks --activationkey=...

Though what you're showing above is certainly not an activation key.

My wild guess would be that the 16-char string is a subscription number
you'll use for activation at http://www.redhat.com/activate

Comment 6 Mirek Marciniszyn 2010-12-07 21:23:36 UTC
This number appears to be subscription number used for the installation. I guess there is no issue then.

Comment 7 Milan Zázrivec 2010-12-08 11:02:44 UTC
My recommendation at this point would be to contact Red Hat Customer Support
to assist you with this issue.

Thank you.
