How to manually import the certificate file in Subscription Management?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I've been trying to register an offline system. When I try to import a certificate, I get the following error:
[root@example]# subscription-manager import --certificate=/path/to/cert/968ebdce-d047-42b4-bd6c-8a390d9d****.pem
968ebdce-d047-42b4-bd6c-8a390d9d****.pem is not a valid certificate file. Please use a valid certificate.
  • I've been referring to the Subscription Management Guide on "5.3.5. Registering an Offline System", but the inserted photos and description of Customer Portal on the documentation differs from how they actually look.
