This document (7023770) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

SUSE Manager 3
SUSE Manager 3.1
SUSE Manager 3.2

Situation

Debugging a bootstap process with "sh -x bootstrap.sh" shows

+ echo ' adding client software repository at https://suma3.lab.suse.com/pub/repositories/sle/12/3/bootstrap'
 adding client software repository at https://suma3.lab.suse.com/pub/repositories/sle/12/3/bootstrap

which is unexpected as the certificate was installed during the bootstap process:

+ rpm -Uvh --force --replacefiles --replacepkgs rhn-org-trusted-ssl-cert-1.0-1.noarch.rpm

+ rm -f rhn-org-trusted-ssl-cert-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
+ '[' 1 -eq 0 ']'
+ echo

Resolution

On the SUSE Manager Server, make a backup copy of the following directories.

- /etc/pki/trust/anchors/
- /root/ssl-build/

Then create a new rhn-org-trusted-ssl-cert-1.0-1.noarch.rpm with:

rhn-ssl-tool --gen-ca --rpm-only --dir="/root/ssl-build"

/usr/bin/rhn-deploy-ca-cert.pl --source-dir /root/ssl-build \
--target-dir /srv/www/htdocs/pub/ --trust-dir=/etc/pki/trust/anchors/

and restart the services with:

spacewalk-service restart

When finished run the bootstrap.sh script again on the client.

Cause

The rhn-org-trusted-ssl-cert-1.0-1.noarch.rpm used was from a previous version of SUSE Manager. The server was migrated to 3.1 or later.

This rhn-org-trusted-ssl-cert-1.0-1.noarch.rpm did not contain the post installation scripts coming with newer versions of SUSE Manager.

Which creates

  • a symbolic link in /etc/pki/trust/anchors/ like:

RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT -> /usr/share/rhn/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT

  • and executes /usr/sbin/update-ca-certificates to add the certificate as trusted.
