Thanks for the help, 2.1ES worked just fine and all is working
perfectly.

Beta 2 has 2.9.6[AEW]S as the release name on the CD's. You can either
add a new channel, or use the versionOverride option in the config file
and it'll probably work as expected. That was the "magic" I was
referring to earlier, but couldn't quite remember at the time.

Right. I can make RHEL 2.1 AS work just fine, with:
os_release = 2.1AS

I haven't gotten RHEL3 beta (Taroon) working with 2.9.5[AEW]S.

I remember one report of getting RHEL working with Current a while back
- look in the mailing list archives. Can't remember when that message
came through at the moment.

The version string should be 2.1[AEW]S; the 2.9.5[AEW]S is the evrsion
string for the RHEL beta (Taroon), although beta2 is labeled for up2date
as 2.9.6[AW]S, so you have to do some funky magicness to make it work
with RHN "out of the box"...

So has anyone gotten it working? in the docs, it was reported to have
been working....or is 2.9.5ES what to use, i tried 2.1ES, and that
didn't float...

Strange, as I also thought it is the version of the redhat-release package,
which is 2.9.5XX (where X is one of AS, WS, etc.).

I fought with it for several days, never figured it out either.

I would have thought the right os_release string is one of "2.9.5AS",
"2.9.5ES", "2.9.5WS", but of course that doesn't work, based on what is
in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid:

The channel name isn't what really matters -- it's the version number
you have in your current.conf.

Is it set to "2.1ES"? Just "2.1" isn't going to work. I don't know for
sure if it's case-sensitive, but it might be. Also, I don't actually
have 2.1ES so I don't know for sure that "2.1ES" is the correct value,
but I think it is.

Message I have my current server working for the regular channels like 7.3, 8.0
and 9.0, but when i try to connect using my ES v. 2.1 server, i get the
following error...

No Compatible Channels Found For Clinet: Login()

I did an up2date from one of my System running ES and in the
/var/spool/up2date dir the files are labeled as:

redhat-ent-linux-i386-es-2.1

I changed my channel name to reflect this to no avail. I saw that
current has reportedly worked on this platform and i'm wondering if
someone can give me some insight into this.

Thanks in advance,

Aaron P. Martinez
