In that case you should update the package profile for the concerned server in
one of the following ways:

     - select your server name by clicking on its name from the list
       available at the following location, select the 'Packages'
       tab and then schedule a 'Package List Refresh'.
           https://rhn.redhat.com/network/systemlist/system_list.pxt

     - run 'up2date -p' as root form the command line of the system
       in question.

gdk, can we scope this out/make it an RFE/whatever?
Comment 2 Fanny Augustin 2006-11-14 15:42:21 EST
Reassigning  bugs from gdk (old RHN engineering Manager) to tsanders (current
RHN engineering manager)
Comment 3 Grant Gainey 2008-04-29 08:54:35 EDT
I don't know when this happened - but the current system sends out emails with
the following under "Taking Action":

"
You may address the issues outlined in this advisory in two ways:

     - select your server name by clicking on its name from the list
       available at the following location, and then schedule an
       errata update for it:
           https://rhn.redhat.com/rhn/systems/SystemList.do

     - run the Update Agent on each affected server.
"

Looks like we did this sometime in the Distant Past.
