Someone already mentioned this already, but changing the IP in
/etc/hosts file and registering again should fix that.

Since I do fresh installs of each new release, I always go to the RHN
website before registering the new system (actually I do it while doing
the install itself), and I remove my existing machine profile so there
aren't any conflicts, or so I don't get confused on which profile is

Just a suggestion for future upgrades/installs or RHN problems that you
can't seem to fix.
