Satellite/Spacewalk Fix or Repair jabber_lib.main: Unable to connect to jabber servers

Seen this discussion many times, but not to much of information in regards to how to fix OSAD to communicate with the Spacewalk or Satellite server once you see this error in the osad log. To fix the error repeating in the osad log as seen below and have the client server come back online. Do the following.

jabber_lib.main: Unable to connect to jabber servers
jabber_lib.main: Unable to connect to jabber servers
jabber_lib.main: Unable to connect to jabber servers

Delete the “osad-auth.conf” normally found in the “rhn” folder of your clients install. This is to be done on the client server, not the actual spacewalk/satellite server. Once deleted, restart osad and another “osad-auth.conf” will be automatically generated. Login to your spacewalk/satellite server and ping the system that is stating offline.
