1.127.2. RHBA-2010:0790: and rhn-client-tools bug fix update
Updated rhn-client-tools and rhnlib packages, that fix a bug that caused the Red Hat Network and Red Hat Network Satellite registration to fail when the Desktop Management Interface (DMI) contained a control character, or when the hardware name contained a non-ASCII character, are now available.
The rhnlib and rhn-client-tools packages contain a collection of Python modules that are used by the Red Hat Network (RHN) software.
* Previously, the presence of less commonly used characters from Latin-1 and UTF-8 character sets in the hardware name rendered the system unable to register to both Red Hat Network and Red Hat Network Satellite Server. This error has been fixed, and the system registration now works as expected. ( BZ#639226
All users of rhnlib and rhn-client-tools are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
