If you already have upgraded to 1.0, then the same certificate provided by the link can also be found here:

Here's the altered command using the 1.0 installed cert:

rhn-satellite-activate --rhn-cert /usr/share/spacewalk/setup/spacewalk-public.cert --disconnected

Certificate included in Spacewalk 0.8 expires on 2010-07-13.
Just download new certificate (already included in Spacewalk 1.0) from


and re-activate your spacewalk
