Description Need Real Name 2002-07-25 12:07:53 EDT
Description of Problem:
When running up2date on a machine which is not registered with RHN, but you
already have an RHN account, up2date still forces you to enter your password
twice to validate it. I suggest that if you are entering an already existing
account name you don't _need_ to validate the password.

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

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run up2date

Actual Results:
System asks you to validate your password

Expected Results:
Only have to enter your password once

Additional Information:
Comment 1 Need Real Name 2002-07-25 15:11:13 EDT
Tried up2date-2.9.28 and this has the same "issue".
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-08-05 04:03:30 EDT
This is still present in up2date-2.9.28, plus you must also enter an email address.

I think that if you are using an already activated account I would only expect
to have to enter the username and the corresponding password (once).

just my 2 cents...
Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2003-01-27 19:41:01 EST
should be nicer in 3.1.5. Registered with an existing account
requires only username/password
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2003-02-14 10:09:59 EST
Fix confirmed with up2date-3.1.15-7.
