Description John Sefler 2010-12-16 15:08:53 UTC
Description of problem:

For those users of the subscription-manager (CLI), the proxy_user and proxy_password are missing from the rhsm.config.  Only after starting the subscription-manager-gui and setting in the gui do the values get saved to the rhsm.config.  They need to be there by default so a cli user will know where to set these values.
