4.6. Troubleshooting errors when generating certificates

4.6.1. Resolving errors with yum installation

  1. Verify that the UUID from the system matches that it matches the one listed on the Customer Portal:
    # openssl x509 -in /etc/pki/consumer/cert.pem -noout -text| grep 'Subject: CN'
    Red Hat Subscription Management Systems View
  2. If the UUID does not match, refresh the subscription data from system:
    # subscription-manager refresh 
    # subscription-manager attach --auto
  3. When using a http proxy with RHSM, the proxy settings need to be put in /etc/rhsm/rhsm.conf (and not /etc/yum.conf).
