It was a problem with permissions. It should work now. Sorry about that.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
Previously, a remote RMI client could execute code on the RMI server with unrestricted privileges. This security issue in the Java Remote Method Invocation (RMI) registry implementation was fixed by the RHSA-2011-1380 security advisory. However, the security restrictions applied by the advisory were too strict and caused the RMI registry to stop working correctly. This update adjusts the RMI registry so it now works as expected.
Since the problem described in this bug report should be
resolved in a recent advisory, it has been closed with a
resolution of ERRATA.
For information on the advisory, and where to find the updated
files, follow the link below.
If the solution does not work for you, open a new bug report.
