One of my Redhat servers can't see any repositorys after registering with our Satellite server. I do have to say this Satellite server is newly setup and the newest Version -> Satellite Server 6 on RedHat 7.1. But so far all other servers could see all the repositorys after the registration.

cat /etc/redhat-release

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.6 (Santiago)

subscription-manager status

   System Status Details
Overall Status: Current

subscription-manager version

subscription-manager: 1.12.14-9.el6_6
python-rhsm: 1.12.5-2.el6

Messages from /var/log/rhsm/rhsm.log on the client-server:

Missing required tag 'rhel-6-server', skipping content: rhel-6-server-rh-common-rpms

On Satellite Server it looks exactly like all the others that have registered. The only difference is, that this client is a VM on a KVM Host instead of an VM on a VMware Host. Google search didn't bring up anything helpful beyond that it is fixed on newer Versions, which i am already on. So i am hoping for suggestions!


I finaly found the Problem. It was a missing cert: /etc/pki/product/69.pem I copied that form one of the other servers and it instantly worked!

I got the solution from https://access.redhat.com/solutions/100423, but no reason why/how this would happen.

And i only got to that article, because in /usr/share/rhsm/subscription_manager/repolib.py the "tag" from the logfile is connected to cert checks ... grumbl
