Last modified: 2016-02-08 09:24:38 EST
Description of problem:
After enabling yum updates, the following errors kept appearing on our RHEL6.x host.
Error Type: up2date_client.up2dateErrors.AbuseError
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux perf-ibm-x3650 2.6.32-220.7.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Feb 10 15:22:22 EST 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
The error message occurs randomly on our IBM x3650 server where RHEl 6.0 was first installed, followed by 'yum update'.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Simply enable 'yum update' on RHEL6.0

You are getting this error because RHN has detected an abuse of
service from this system and account. This error is triggered when
your system makes too many connections to Red Hat Network. This
error can not be triggered under a normal use of the Red Hat Network
service as configured by default on Red Hat Linux.
The Red Hat Network services for this system will remain disabled
until you will reduce the RHN network traffic from your system to
Please log into RHN and visit https://%(hostname)s/help/contact.pxt
to contact technical support if you think you have received this
message in error.
Anyway, in fact this is just abuse reject from RHN. Most probably caused by too often run of rhn_check.
Is it possible that you have it in crontab with low interval (few minutes)?
Are you registred to rhn.redhat.com or to RHN Satellite?
Since RHEL 6.3 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
