Fixed in upstream (spacewalk master) by
commit 4764a50696a20b3ac0282a43f2fd144edd04ef6c
    554693 - networkRetries should be positive number

Comment 1 Michael Mráka 2010-08-20 12:58:31 UTC
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 15:37:52 UTC
Verified - it now does only one attempt when nonsense is inserted. (Default is 1 in stock /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date)
