RHEL x86_64 yum, Error: certificate verify failed


We installed 3 new rhel 5.5 systems yesterday; each of which are generating this error " Error: certificate verify failed" in response to a basic "yum update". From what I can gather, via a general search, this may be isolated to x86_64 -- however the references I found were specific to Satellite Server (which we are not using). Never the less, I checked the PATHs for the cert and they are correct.

All of our 32 bit systems are running RHEL 5.5 and this is not a problem on any of them.

I'm stumped on this one -- does anyone know of a fix for this?


thanks.

well you've not given enough information to properly diagnose it. Certificates fail in many many ways, it's such a generic thing. Ultimately it'll be the case that one or more of your yum repos is using an ssl connection, presumably https. if you're not interested in the security then you can probably just remove the s in the url.

Hi there!
I have the same issue, on monday we installed 4 servers, 3 of them work fine, only 1 is the problem with yum update or yum install
the error:

>yum update
loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
Error: certificate verify failed

all 4 servers have the same configuration, the same hardware, no restrictions at all, the same media, I reinstall the server , delete the server at RHN and still the error!!

Does anyone how of fix it?

Thanks a lot!!

I had this issue and discovered that the problem was related to the date and time on the server.

The solution was to set the date/time correctly, which then allowed the certificate to be successfully validated for the rhnplugin.

I've seen this recently also on RHEL 5.5 x86_64. My resolution was "yum makecache"

Hope that helps

I did the same, but then also did a 'yum --no-gpg-check update'

dude,

1.) Use verbose mode in the yum and paste the output and also check whether the 3 servers has been registered with RHN from www.redhat.com/support/

2.) Also goto docs.redhat.com and find the technical document for the version. There you can find whether this is a Open Bug or its a closed (with solution)
