Re: [Spacewalk-list] Cannot register clients in spacewalk



Firstly should you be connecting to the DNS name of your Spacewalk
server instead of the IP address? This would depend on what your
server certificate is made out to.

Secondly, did you import the CA cert on the client? Check the
certificate referenced by the value sslCACert in
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date on the client to make sure it's the correct
one to validate the server certificate.
