Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 69846
still says Software Manager
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:58:04 EST
In the error message that pops up when you try to run up2date without
entitling, it says the system is not entitled to Software Manager. It
should say RHN Basic.
*** Bug 69847 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Message is generated server side, so reassigning to a Red Hat Network/backend bug
To quote gdk, it is still called Software Manager.
The full error message is:
The Software Manager functionality has not been enabled for this server.
Please login at https://rhn.redhat.com/, and from the "Your RHN" section,
select "Entitlements" to enable RHN service for this server.
Tammy, Greg, what would you suggest?
Software Manager is still, to the best of my knowledge, a valid name for the
overall service for managing RPMs. The trouble with replacing this message with
"RHN Basic" is that customer could also get this message if they were a
Satellite customer with an unentitled system -- and we have no practical way of
reporting "you need to put this into a basic slot" or "you need to put this into
an enterprise slot." You need to put it into a Software Manager slot.
I suppose that we could change it to say "not entitled to Red Hat Network
service," which is nice and generic. Tammy, is this better?
Yes. Generic is best. Although, you need an "a" in from of Red Hat Network:
"not entitled to a Red Hat Network service"
Heh, gafton changed this a couple of days ago.
indeed - fixed, closing.
