Description Dimitar Yordanov 2011-08-10 09:47:48 EDT
Description of problem:
No documentation about the /root/ssl-build  or "--force-own-ca" option.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHN-Proxy 5.4.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Proxy Guide  -> 4.2. RHN Proxy Server Installation Process
2. Section 2 : To perform an installation, type the following command: 

After  executing "configure-proxy.sh" the following message is generated.

Error: ssl build directory /root/ssl-build does not exist. Please create this directory.

When the folder is created:

# configure-proxy.sh
RHN Parent [dyordano-09.lab.eng.brq.redhat.com]: 
CA Chain [/usr/share/rhn/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT]: 
Please do copy your CA key and public certificate from dyordano-09.lab.eng.brq.redhat.com to 
/root/ssl-build directory. You may want to execute this command:
 scp 'root@dyordano-09.lab.eng.brq.redhat.com:/root/ssl-build/{RHN-ORG-PRIVATE-SSL-KEY,RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT,rhn-ca-openssl.cnf}' /root/ssl-build

To execute this command you will need root access to the RHEL server on which Satllite is running.
This is not documented. 

There is another option:
 configure-proxy.sh --force-own-ca
that is not documented as well.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Lana Brindley 2012-01-04 21:17:35 EST
		In order to perform this step successfully, you will require root access to the Satellite server. Alternatively, add the <command>--force-own-ca</command> option to the command.
