Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2000:138 high SHIPPED_LIVE New, enhanced Update Agent for Red Hat Linux 6.x, 7.0 available 2000-12-21 05:00:00 UTC

Description Daniel Roesen 2000-09-30 04:05:40 UTC
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 19:02:12 UTC
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.
