rhn_register A socket error occurred

All,

I'm getting the following error while I try to register the server to connect the redhat network for the updates.

I check the ports and they are open. Any ideas. I'm using RHEL 5.3
Thanks

did you use rhn_register --configure ?

Old 09-25-2009
yes I did use that but it says ..
HTML Code:
# rhn_register --configure 
usage: rhn_register [options]

rhn_register: error: no such option: --configure

I had the same problem after a half-failed registration.
I changed the IP of the server I was trying to register and it worked fine after that.

I hope this works for you.

It didnot work either. I cloned VM server and changed ipaddress and tried. But no luck.
Thanks.

First if all, modern versions of rhn_register have a much more limited set of command line configuration options than older versions. Specifically there is no --configure option.

In /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date check that the serverURL is set to https://xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com/XMLRPC.

Next check that you have a valid SSL certificate (RHNS_CA_CERT) in /usr/share/rhn. If the SSL certificate has expired, or your subscription has expired, you will get connection refused.

You can download the latest SSL certificate from https://rhn.redhat.com/help/RHNS-CA-CERT. More information about how to do this is at https://rhn.redhat.com/help/ssl_cert.pxt

Thanks for the info.

I have server URL in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date file.

I compared the downloaded cert and cert existed on the server and both looks same with validity dates and that tells me that my cert is valid.

i dont think my subscription is expired as I registered about 10 systems after and all are working fine. Thanks.

Cache read misses from an instruction cache generally cause the longest delays because the processor, and in particular the thread of execution, has to wait until the instruction is fetched from main memory.
