Notes from email:
-------- Original Message --------
Subject: [rhn-satellite-beta-users] PAM_auth issues.
Date: Thu, 1 Mar 2007 13:56:31 -0500
From: Jeremy Hallum <>

We are testing the satellite server out, and we would like to use  
pam_auth to authenticate people using our kerberos server.

We find that we can log in fine, but when we attempt to run the  
rhn_register command from an RHEL 4 or an RHEL 5 machine, we get the  
following error:

[Tue Feb 13 10:37:26 2007] rhn_register
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/", line 1712, in  
    return function()
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/", line 477, in  
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/", line 211, in  
    return s.registration.reserve_user(username, password)
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/", line 62, in  
    message = pieces[2].strip(" '")
exceptions.IndexError: list index out of range

Anyone seen this problem?
