Description of problem:
On the Red Hat Network website, in the "systems->properties" section,
I enabled "Auto Errata Update" (Automatic application of relevant
errata), but no automatic updates happen- I still have to manually
"Apply Errata" for each of my machines all the time. Does this
checkbox have no effect? How do I make the errata to apply automatically?

I have the same problem. I used to work fine, but recently the auto update
feature stopped working on all my 4 systems that have managemnt entittlements.

The starnge thing is that if you go to the properties of the system in RHN, edit
the properties, untick auto errata update, save properties, edit properties
again, and tick the auto update feature, save, it then schedules the updates.
But when the next updates come along a week later, i wont automatically install
even if the auto errata update is yes. See above screenshot in attachment 133844 [details]

My skip-list only contains kernel*, so that is not the problem IMHO. up2date
also works fine.

Comment 4 Steven Riley 2006-08-10 15:05:41 UTC
I have recently observed the exact same behavior described in comment #2 above. 

Comment 5 Mauro Innocenti 2006-08-23 14:24:00 UTC
I confirm the same problem/behaviour on my 6 RHEL4 AS systems.
rhnsd service is running on all systems.

Comment 6 Andrew Gormanly 2006-08-25 08:21:33 UTC
Confirmed here: 33 RHEL machines are set to auto-update, and none have done so
since 18th July.
