Thread: RHN check in time

Hybrid View

  1. RHN check in time

    We are running suma 3.2 and sles & sled 12 & 15. The file /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhnsd has the rhn checkin time set to <INTERVAL=240 default> . We change it to 60 minutes. But every so often we notice that something is changing it back to 240 and creating the rpmsave file that contains the 60.

    Is there anything we can do to stop this ? It's getting to be a pain to have to keep changing it back to 60. We want our server to check in every hour for schedule tasks. Whether they be patches, remote commands or reboots. 4 hours is too big a window.

    Thanks

    This is a packaging bug and would qualify for a support request.

    You can either use 'osad' or switch to Salt.

    Don't have a solution but as a workaround you could try making the file non-writable with something like "chmod -w /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhnsd".
