[Satellite6] clients can't register to Satellite/Capsule despite having katello-ca-consumer-latest package installed

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • regenerating SSL certificates on Satellite or an external Capsule
  • a client host reinstalls katello-ca-consumer-latest package to get the SSL certificates update
  • but the client host fails to either register to the Satellite/Capsule, or goferd fails to connect to Satellite/Capsule port 5647
  • checking content of /var/www/html/pub directory in the Satellite/Capsule, katello-ca-consumer-latest symbolic link does not point to the newest RPM with highest rpm minor version
    • e.g. despite having version 1.0-10 there, the *-latest symlink points to 1.0-9


  • Red Hat Satellite 6.0 and 6.1
