Description Pavel Studeník 2012-12-12 16:07:02 UTC
Description of problem:
I tried register system to rhn satellite by rhn_register in GUI. I filled bad value in field "Location" (window "Choose Service"). I got error message. I repaired this value and tried it again. But I couldn't continue with registration and got same error.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run GUI rhn_register
2. set incorrect value in field "Location" in window "Choose Service" and confirm
3. get error message and try to continue
4. set correct value (exist url of satellite) to this field and confirm
Actual results:
Value is correct, but I can't continue with registration and I get this error in /var/log/up2date:

>> tail /var/log/up2date
rhn_register A socket error occurred: [Errno -2] Name or service not known, attempt #1

    raise up2dateErrors.CommunicationError(e.args[1])
<class 'up2date_client.up2dateErrors.CommunicationError'>: Error communicating with server. The message was:

Expected results:
If I set correct value I can continue with registration.
