2010-12-20 07:22:54 jabber_lib.main: Sleeping 107 seconds

Expected results:
/etc/init.d/osad restart should regenerated auth info by deleting osad-auth.conf.

Additional info:
osad takes auth info from /etc/sysconfig/rhn/osad-auth.conf
When I delete this file + osad restart then it starts working

Comment 1 Petr Sklenar 2010-12-20 14:09:33 UTC
or it could write some info message about removing/checking osad-auth.conf in log file

Comment 2 Ivan Makfinsky 2011-10-26 18:45:19 UTC
Indeed, we are seeing the same thing at another client site that is using RHN Satellite 5.4.1. Deleting the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/osad-auth.conf file worked.
