Hello Abhi Abhi,

Are you using American English or a local language (e.g. Arabic) during installation?

We have seen for example that a French installation pionts you to a wrong url to confirm the Red Hat Terms and conditions.

Running LANG=C subscription-manager register fixed the issue in that case.

thanks Jan Gerrit Kootstra. Yes,of course! and i chosen English and ran the LANG=C subscription-manager register which you provided but again its showing the same error,let me know what happening.

Hello Abhi,

I do not know what is going wrong.

I suggest you to open a support case for this, I have seen this issue myself.

Hi Abhi,

I recall having resolved this by accepting the license in Text Mode.
Invoking the Initial Setup manually let me register successfully ... :)



Sorry for hi-jacking the thread a bit but it might be a central issue with TNC. I'm trying to attach a subscription to one of my systems using the web interface and I get a similar message:

"Red Hat Terms and Conditions
