+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #789008 +++
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Rhel5.8 with following rpm
Register machine to rhn classic
Use rhn-migrate-classic-to-rhsm for migration with invalid rhn credentials.
Expected Result: The error message should be more specific, some thing like your user name/password is incorrect.
Actual result: It throws the following error message:
[root@ibm-z10-25 yum.repos.d]# rhn-migrate-classic-to-rhsm
RHN Username: test
Unable to connect to certificate server. See /var/log/rhsm/rhsm.log for more details.

This bug was fixed as part of 6.3.
Please be sure to reverify on first dev build for RHEL5.9
It looks like this bug has regressed in RHEL 5.9 due to a change I made to add SLA selection. The fix for this regression is fairly simple; however, the fix uncovers another more serious bug with i18n error messages. Printing the error returned by the server results in an UnicodeEncodeError when the i18n text is printed to stderr. Until I find a fix for this more serious error, I am hesitant to commit the fix for the regression.
