Description of problem:
The website is showing "System not checking in with RHN", it shows "Checked In:
2003-06-08 15:34:28 (GMT)".
Yesterday, the RHN tray icon was showing a big blue circle with a tick.
Shortly after booting my computer today, it changed to a red circle with an
exclamation mark. It's found an update.
My computer must have checked in to look for updates.
This has happenned before. Previously, right-clicking and choosing "check for
updates" would fix the problem.
confirm that the account you are logging into the website with is the same that
is listed in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid (search for 'username'). also confirm
that rhnsd is running:
/sbin/service rhnsd status
if it is not running, execute:
/sbin/service rhnsd start
/sbin/chkconfig rhnsd on
The daemon is running, and my username matches.
It's working now..
It still works - BUT scheduled reboots don't.
I'm happy for this bug to be closed. Original problem fixed.
