On the satellite host, check the hostname for /etc/sysconfig/rhn/osad.conf, make sure hostname matches the cert you are using from the spacewalk core server.

I'm using


I am at Signing the Certificate.

I downloaded and ran

./ --orgid 1 --owner guser --signer guser  --output /usr/share/spacewalk/setup/spacewalk-public.cert --expires 2022-04-22 --slots 20000 --provisioning-slots 20000 --satellite-version 1.7

   gpg: Signature made Fri 04 May 2012 11:51:12 AM AKDT using RSA key ID 30D3829B
   gpg: Good signature from "guser (spacewalk 1) <>"
   Signatures validation succeeded.
   Certificate saved as /usr/share/spacewalk/setup/spacewalk-public.cert


It appears to have worked.


However, spacewalk-servce restart causes osa-dispatcher error:

Starting osa-dispatcher: RHN 27121 2012/05/07 12:06:50 -08:00: ('Traceback (most recent call last):\n  File "/usr/share/rhn/osad/", line 252, in setup_connection\n    c = self._get_jabber_client(js)\n  File "/usr/share/rhn/osad/", line 309, in _get_jabber_client\n    c.connect()\n  File "/usr/share/rhn/osad/", line 567, in connect\n    jabber.Client.connect(self)\n  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/jabber/", line 488, in connect\n    raise socket.error("Unable to connect to the host and port specified")\nerror: Unable to connect to the host and port specified\n',)



the gui now gives http Status 500-

java.lang.NumberFormatException: null


I am not using oracle.  I am using postgre so it's not the oracle bug.
