Sometime Urchin may prompt for a new serial key for already configured and working system. You can reset Urchin easily and get rid of this problem.

First, log onto the server via SSH and as root user.

Once logged in type the following two commands to reset it:
# cd /usr/local/urchin/util/
# ./uconf-driver action=set_parameter recnum=1 ct_serial=0
# ./uconf-driver action=set_parameter recnum=1 ct_license=0
