Description Daniel Roesen 2000-09-30 00:05:40 EDT
From /etc/rc.d/init.d/rhsnd:

# interval in minutes to connect to Red Hat Network. Any value below 20
# will result in blacklisting of the IP address.

This makes one think that it's technically possible to set $INTERVAL below
20, but source inspection reveals that it has a hard coded limit to 20
minutes in rhsnd.
Comment 1 Preston Brown 2000-10-04 15:02:12 EDT
an errata release of up2date will address the comment; additionally a config
file /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhnsd has been added where you can edit the INTERVAL
value without touching the init script.
