Re: [Spacewalk-list] I can now update CentOS

yes, there are a partial lack on documentations, partial, because if can see when launch rhnreg_ks on serverUrl it use http and not https, and if you don't import ca key (by text file or rpm) http will works fine (but I'm not sure if osad will works), on the other hand https wont works without ca key

Good point – I think this step belongs on the https://fedorahosted.org/spacewalk/wiki/RegisteringClients page.


I’m pretty sure I had the same problem when I originally installed Spacewalk 0.7 but thought it was just my mistake.

This is not any any documentation that I can find. As a matter of fact, when I first started working on this, I ran into an error about RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT.  I posted a question to this list, and a person replied back telling me that I needed to scp RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT from the SW server to the client.  That resolved that particular error, but no where have I found that I need to install an additional rpm.


I will install it and test.


Thank you.

Daryl this seem that you haven't imported your spacewalk ssl keys, usually under pub directory of your SW server you can find two files:


install rpm on your spacewalk clients, and then your clients has this ssl key under:


and with this you can use https communications between spacewalk server and clients... -> with this is more safe if you have provision entitlements and want to execute on real time scripts (communication goes through http over ssl)

Oggetto: [Spacewalk-list] I can now update CentOS


> Previous questions were about the failure of updating CentOS from the Spacewalk server.  I was getting the following error:

> Perhaps this is a known bug that was only fixed in RH Satellite and not addressed in SW because I found other postings with the exact same issue.  These postings go back for over a year, so I know this has been an issue for sometime.  Almost all of these posts have the same replies: execute a yum clean all, update yum, etc...  I did all of that as well as did the others in who have the same issue.  Stop/start the satellite server etc....
