Description Charles Crouch 2003-01-30 02:43:45 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
I created a RHN account a while ago and have now forgotten what the password is.
It turns out that Ive also forgotten what the username is.

This unfortunately means that I cannot use the current �Forgotten Password�

So I went to create another RHN account and entered my details. On submission
the creation failed, because �Another account has the same email address�. I
entered the same email address as I did when I created the original RHN account!

I only have one email account so using another is not an option.

In short there seems to be 2 solutions to this problem:
1) Let the forgotten password facility just require an email address. This
should not be unreasonable for personal accounts
2) Let one create a new RHN account using an existing email address.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a RHN account with email1
2.Forget RHN username and password
3.Create another RHN account with email1

Actual Results:  Couldnṫ create account

Expected Results:  2nd Account should be created
