Re: [Spacewalk-list] problems with osad



I decided to revert my two clients back to initial install (I love VM :) )  I recreated the certificate on the spacewalk server and re-registered both clients.  All is now good.  I am now scheduling updates, and osad is picking them up and patching my systems.

Thank you to everyone who replied and gave me assistance.

Daryl

Firewall is not running on any of my demo/test servers.  One of the first things that I do when building a new server is shutdown, and disable iptables.  I verified just to make sure before I posted this reply.

>From the documentation that I read, the osad is supposed to use the same cert that is defied in the up2date file, unless I need a different one, then I would configure osad.conf to point to that cert.

As I was typing this reply, I decided to test using rhn_check again.  This time, I received an error telling me there were SSL errors.  Certificate verify failed.  So, perhaps I am still having certificate errors and perhaps when I ran the rhn_check previously it was just a fluke.

I'll do some more digging and post back.

Thank you.

Daryl

Hi Daryl,

the check in interval is for rhnsd, not osad. The first is checking in
regularly, minimum interval is 60 minutes. The latter is for instant
communication between server and clients.

So you schedule an action, the clients get notified via
osa-dispatcher/osad that there are new events.

You renewed your certificate, did you also replace the one
osa-dispatcher is using? If you have build an rpm for the certificate
that should have taken care of that, otherwise you might need to switch
the osa-dispatcher certificate for the new one..

On your spacewalk server, are the jabber services and osa-dispatcher
running? -> check with 'spacewalk-service status'

On the firewall, are the necessary ports open? See
https://fedorahosted.org/spacewalk/wiki/HowToInstall for the
ports/directions they have to be open

Regards
Sebastian

The original certificate did not contain the FQDN of the server and the SLES 11 client would not work unless I recreated the certificate.  I unregistered both of my test clients, RHEL 6.x and SLES 11, and re-registered both of them using the latest certificate.  I can update both environments using the rhn_check -vv, so I'm assuming that the certificate is working just fine.  And yes, the FQDN in the certificate matched the FQDN in the up2date config file.
