Angry RH8 Up2Date Issue

Hey, folks:

I tried to fix some other problems by reinstalling linux. I repeated each step exactly including choosing the same name for my computer profile that you register online. Now, Up2Date is giving me the error regarding my entitlements on RHN. Any suggestions?

redo the registration:

1. delete /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid
2. logon to (hey they have a new look ). and delete your system profile.

3. then re-register (up2date --register)

I forgot - u can just move your entitlements from the old system entry to your new system. (i got lost in the new RHN web )

go to and login then go to red hat network preferences section. from there u can view your systems registered and change which ones get the RHN entitlements by a drop down menu.

Talking Thanks!

born4linux and phoenix:

Thanks for the tips. Up2Date is back up and running. I hadn't had the chance to look at RHN. Nice site.

Thanks again!
