Error Message


I successfully installed RedHat ASDE 2.1 but when I try to register on RHN I receive the following:

Error Message:
Your account does not have access to any channels matching (release='2.1ASDE', arch='i686-redhat-linux')
Error Class Code: 19
Error Class Info:
Architecture and OS version combination is not supported. If you have a registration number, please register with it first at http://www.redhat.com/now and then try again.

I do not have a registration number. I have a difficult time believing that it's not supported on an Intel platform (which is what the Error Class Info seems to indicate).

Thanks for any help with this problem! It's had me stumped for a few days now.

This seems more like a problem with Redhat and their RHN. Have you attempted to contact Redhat on the matter? How come you don't have a registration number? If you bought it as retail, you should have a registration number from what I understand about the RHN.

trickykid,

Thanks for replying.

I'm setting up a server for a person at work and they gave me a copy of AS to install. I think they got a copy from somewhere and once they put it in production they plan on buying a copy (I'm not going to dispute them on this since it's their deal!).

I was under the impression with RedHat that all you had to do was register in order to download security updates. That's the only reason why I wish to register at this point.

Yes, you will most likely need the registration code or number to utilize the RHN. They only give it to those who purchase Redhat from retail from my understanding.

I think there is a way you can update security through their RHN, but the Redhat servers are very busy and slow unless you pay for their premium service.

Check out apt4rpm and Red Carpet for better and easier to use options for updating.

trickykid & fancypiper,

Thanks! First thing I will do is bug these guys to buy a legit copy but in the meantime I'll check out the sites mentioned.
