Description of problem:
I have noticed on a number of recent occasions both on my basic accounts at home
and the enterprise account at work that running up2date will fetch errata that
have been recently released (within the past hour or two) that do not appear in
the list of errata for the system running up2date and can not be scheduled using
the web interface. This leads to either running up2date on critical systems or
repeatedly checking Red Hat Network to see if an update is schedulable. The
updates also do not appear to become available for all systems in the account at
the same time. Some can have the update available, and others will not be
listed as needing the update until later.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Current information 22 Sept 2003 09:20 alert icon is red exclamation point. The
alert icon and up2date show perl-5.8.0-88.3:2 perl-CGI-2.81-88.3:2 and
perl-CPAN-1.61-88.3:2 available. Red Hat Network web page shows all systems
with blue check mark - no updates necessary.
A small delay is expected. Presumably, if you want to get updates as soon as
they are released you can have a crontab call up2date or yum (depending on RHEL
version) as frequently as once every 15 minutes.
Please re-open this bug if you still have problems.
