SUSE Manager 2.1
A message is displayed in the login screen of the SUSE Manager web-UI:
"Your SUSE Manager Certificate has expired. Your SUSE Manager is on day 1 of 24 day restricted period and will soon stop functioning. Please contact SUSE for a new certificate."
SUSE Manager 2.1 is out of support since April 2017. An upgrade to a supported version is mandatory. There will be no patch to prevent this issue or any other similar one.
However, customers have reported the following procedure to bypass the problem:
gpg --keyring /etc/webapp-keyring.gpg --no-default-keyring --import spacewalk-cert-key.gpg
rhn-satellite-activate --disconnected --rhn-cert=spacewalk-public.cert
Spacewalk 2.4 still uses certificates. This problem does not exist with following versions, such as 2.5. However, SUSE Manager 2.1 will not receive such updates, which are already available in newer versions.
Please upgrade your server to a supported version immediately. The process for the migration of version 2.1 to 3.0 is documented here:
From version 3.0 (supported till October 2018) upgrades to 3.1 and then to 3.2 are easily available by simply running "zypper migration"
