Description Jan Hutař 2013-07-31 00:48:42 EDT
Description of problem:
You do not have way how to specify CA certificate on command line. You have to go to /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhnpushrc to fix it.

# rhnpush --username=<user> --password=<pass> --server=https://<fqdn>/APP --channel=<channel> -v --nosig --force /tmp/<package>.rpm
Connecting to https://<fqdn>/APP

ERROR: unhandled exception occurred: (Certificate file /usr/share/rhn/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT is not accessible).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to have incorrect "ca_chain" option in rhnpushrc file and use
   command line to to push package

Actual results:
I have not found a way how to do so

Expected results:
There might be option like --ca-cert (satellite-sync have that)

Comment 5 Martin Korbel 2013-09-25 08:50:44 EDT
VERIFIED   on rhnpush-5.5.65-5.el6sat
REPRODUCED on rhnpush-5.5.65-1.el6sat

rhnpush-5.5.42-7.el6sat ignores unknow CA. 

Steps to reproduce:
1. create custom channel
> python
>>> import xmlrpclib
>>> client = xmlrpclib.Server('http://<fqdn>/rpc/api', verbose=0)
>>> key = client.auth.login('admin','xxx')
>>> client.channel.software.create(key,"my-channel","my-channel","my-channel","channel-x86_64","",{})

2. prepare and push package
> export SERVER="<fqdn>"
> wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/BitchX-1.2.1-1.el6.x86_64.rpm -O /tmp/BitchX-1.2.1-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
> rhnpush --username=admin --password=xxx --channel=my-channel --server=https://$SERVER/APP -v --nosig --force /tmp/BitchX-1.2.1-1.el6.x86_64.rpm 

ERROR: unhandled exception occurred: ([('SSL routines', 'SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE', 'certificate verify failed')]).

ERROR: unhandled exception occurred: (Certificate file /usr/share/rhn/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT is not accessible).

3. again with CA
> rhnpush --username=admin --password=xxx --channel=my-channel --server=https://$SERVER/APP --ca-chain=/tmp/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT.$SERVER -v --nosig --force /tmp/BitchX-1.2.1-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
