- The dbus packages, which contain the D-BUS communication system, are not included in the minimal installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. However, the subscription-manager utility depends on dbus, which could previously cause subscription-manager to terminate unexpectedly with a traceback during the registration process. The system was registered successfully but the rhsmcertd daemon was not able to communicate with subscription manager servers, such as candlepin, Subscription Asset Manager, or katello. With this update, subscription-manager exits without a traceback when dbus is not present on the system. To ensure proper communication with the subscription manager servers, install dbus manually by running "yum install dbus".
- Due to an incorrect error handling of invalid system names, the system could be left in unusable state during the first boot process. The handling of invalid system names has been fixed and first boot proceeds properly as expected.
- With this update, the subscribe-manager "unsubscribe" command has been renamed to "remove".
