1.274. subscription-manager

Updated subscription-manager packages that fix several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The Subscription Manager tool allows users to understand the specific products which have been installed on their machines, and the specific subscriptions which their machines are consuming.
Warning: Before applying this update, there is a manual step that you may need to perform. This step assumes that you are using the new subscription manager entitlement tooling to apply software updates. If you are encountering an "[Errno 14] problem with the local client certificate" error message when executing yum commands, you will need to run the following commands as root:
    # rm -f /etc/pki/entitlement/*
# subscription-manager refresh
Note that systems that are using Red Hat Network Classic for software entitlement updates do not need to perform this manual step before applying this errata update.
Bug Fixes
BZ#712409
When the subscription-manager utility had been upgraded, it put incorrect data to the sslclientkey repository parameter value. Consequently, when the yum utility was executed to install a software, yum terminated with the "[Errno 14] problem with the local client certificate" error message. The bug in subscription-manager has been fixed and yum can now be run without any certificate errors.
BZ#712128
Previously, running the firstboot utility with the "-r" option, while the subscription-manager-firstboot utility was already installed, caused firstboot to terminate with a traceback; firstboot also failed to display a message stating that the computer was already registered with Red Hat Network. This bug has been fixed, firstboot now displays the warning message properly and no tracebacks are issued in the described scenario.
BZ#712130
Two variations were used in the ProductName parameter for the workstation subscription: "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation" and "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Workstation". As a consequence, users running the "subscription-manager list --installed" command, while subscribed to the "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation" subscription, got a misleading report. With this update, the ProductId parameter is used instead to compare subscriptions in the described scenario, and the bug no longer occurs.
BZ#712408
Previously, the "Start Date" and "End Date" fields in the Contract Selection dialog window of the subscription-manager-gui utility were not populated. With this update, the dates are displayed as expected.
All users of subscription-manager are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
Updated subscription-manager packages that fix three bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The Subscription Manager tool allows users to understand the specific products which have been installed on their machines, and the specific subscriptions which their machines are consuming.
Bug Fixes
BZ#702029
Prior to this update, the graphical user interface of the Subscription Manager utility incorrectly listed unlimited subscriptions as "-1". This update adapts the Subscription Manager to mark such subscriptions as "unlimited".
BZ#702030
Due to incorrect handling of user's locale settings, the "My Subscriptions" tab in the previous version of the Subscription Manager may have displayed incorrect end dates. With this update, the underlying source code has been adapted to address this issue, and the "My Subscriptions" tab now displays correct end dates.
BZ#702398
Previously,the Subscription Manager used the same key.pem file for all entitlements. However, the NSS (Network Security Services) libraries require a different file for each entitlement, and an attempt to install packages on a system with more than one subscription therefore failed with an error message similar to the following:
        [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 22 - "NSS: private key not found for
certificate: PEM Token #1:1310636811763322869.pem"
This update adapts the Subscription Manager to create a unique key.pem file for each entitlement, so that packages can now be installed as expected on such systems.
All users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
