    554693 - networkRetries should be positive number
Comment 1 Michael Mráka 2010-08-20 08:58:31 EDT
The bug has been fixed in upstream and backported to RHEL5. It should be also backported to next version of RHEL6.

Comment 4 Martin Minar 2011-02-21 10:37:52 EST
Verified - it now does only one attempt when nonsense is inserted. (Default is 1 in stock /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date)
