Description of problem:
Running one single up2date to upgrade from an older Fedora beta to
newer packages (maybe 1600 packages) triggers the following 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):
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?
Nope, the machine was registered over a month ago and has (I think)
done some small updates via RHN before.
Under normal circumstances this should not happen.
