SUSE Manager Proxy 4.3


While accessing content via a SUSE Manager Proxy, requests fail with a HTTP 404 error. Checking /var/log/messages on the proxy shows errors similar to:

[Mon Jan 29 21:40:35.748914 2024] [wsgi:error] [pid 50516] [client CLIENT-IP:47874] SUSE Manager 50516 2024/01/29 21:40:35 +02:00: ('Checksum check failed: CHECKSUMSTRING_IN_FILE != CHECKSUMSTRING_KNOWN_BY_SUSE_MANAGER', "fields = ['system_id', 'os_release', 'operating_system', 'architecture', 'username', 'type']", "attrs = {'username': 'admin', 'os_release': '4.1', 'operating_system': 'sles-release', 'architecture': 'x86_64-redhat-linux', 'system_id': 'ID-SYSTEM', 'type': 'REAL', 'profile_name': 'HOSTNAME', 'description': 'Initial Registration Parameters:\\\\nOS: sles-release\\\\nRelease: 12.1\\\\nCPU Arch: x86_64'}")



/etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid contains an unknown checksum which is used for authentication against SUSE Manager. To resolve this issue, please use the following steps:

  1. spacewalk-proxy stop ; systemctl stop salt-minion
  2. Edit /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid and change the checksum value to the value known by SUSE Manager.  For example, from the error message in Situation above, change the checksum value from what CHECKSUMSTRING_IN_FILE displays to the value CHECKSUMSTRING_KNOWN_BY_SUSE_MANAGER displays.
  3. systemctl start salt-minion ; spacewalk-proxy start


The checksum value in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid changed.
