Description Josef Komenda 2002-07-16 21:31:53 UTC
Description of Problem: After running the satellite installer, re-running it
with 'Skip Registration' checked jumps to the satellite Satellite cert screen,
and you cannot enter the previous cert, nor can you leave it blank. To proceed,
you must delete the currently registered system, and re-register.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): see 63780

How Reproducible: run sat installer 2x with 'Skip Registration' checked the
second time.

Hmm, not sure I understand. Does something throw an error message?

The installer isnt really designed to be ran more than once.

Comment 2 Josef Komenda 2002-07-17 15:27:15 UTC
Ok, I performed a kickstart to sat-inst.test.redhat.com, and using the
installer_16jul02_1425.iso (latest build), I select the 'Skip Registration'
checkbox on the 'RHN Account Information' screen. I then get the 'Satellite
Application Server settings' page, which wants a e-mail and sat cert. Entering
these and clicking 'next' gives the alert message 'There was a problem entitling
the server. Check the log in /var/log/satinstall', however, no entries are made
in this file relative to this message, and clicking 'OK' on the alert simply
returns you to the 'Satellite Application Server settings' page.

Thus, selecting the 'Skip Registration' checkbox means you cannot proceed past
the 'Satellite Application Server settings' page, and so, you can't install the

Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2002-07-17 20:22:53 UTC
hmmm. Yeah.

It tries to entitle the system and run up2date, which in the 
case you describe, doesnt make anysense.

"Skip RHN Registrations" seems like it can me two things.

a) Dont register me with RHN, dont entitle the satelite, dont
   run up2date, etc

b) I've already registered this machine, dont do it again.

It seems like the installer mixes these ideas currently. I'll
update the installer to be more consistently (a) since I belive
that was the original intent. 

If thats the wrong assumption, someone tell me.
