Self Signed certificate error

Latest response

When trying to sync redhat repo's we are receiving an error from our repo server for untrusted certificate.

This can also be seen externally when using a tool such as SSL labs. We also get the same warning in browsers.

How come cdn.redhat.com now uses a self signed certificate? And will this be updated?

Hello Lewis,

Have you checked this? https://access.redhat.com/articles/1373143

Hope this helps!

The files on cdn.redhat.com is actually protected using certificates in a special RH PKI. You will not be able to directly download from it without having the correct client certificates. You need to have a valid subscription/license to receive those certificates (happens behind the scenes).
If the original problem here is that your Satellite cannot download from cdn.redhat.com, please make sure...
1) .. you have created a subscription allocation for your Satellite server, including valid subscriptions
2) .. you have exported the manifest for that "subscription allocation" into a file
3) .. you have imported that manifest file into your Satellite, at menu "Subscriptions" / "Manage Manifest" / "Import New Manifest" / "Choose File".
Sometimes you can simply press the "Refresh"-button at the same menu.
