Description Rik van Riel 2003-11-02 11:11:49 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3b)

Description of problem:
Running one single up2date to upgrade from an older Fedora beta to
newer packages (maybe 1600 packages) triggers the following message:

Error Message:
    Abuse of Service detected for server mirkwood.surriel.com (1003617555)
Error Class Code: 49
Error Class Info: 
     You are getting this error because RHN has detected an abuse of
     service from this system and account. This error is triggered when
     your system makes too many connections to Red Hat Network. This
     error can not be triggered under a normal use of the Red Hat Network
     service as configured by default on Red Hat Linux.

This is with ONE up2date program running. After this happens I need to
wait for 2 hours before I can get more packages...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run up2date --nox --update
2. wait for error

Expected Results:  up2date should just run to completion

Was the machine freshly registered?
Comment 2 Rik van Riel 2003-11-03 14:16:24 EST
Nope, the machine was registered over a month ago and has (I think)
done some small updates via RHN before.
Comment 3 Mihai Ibanescu 2004-04-05 16:26:38 EDT
Under normal circumstances this should not happen.
