YUM gets abuse of service for server ERROR CODE: 49

Latest response


Its been awhile since I've worked on RHEL 6 but I'm getting this error message whenever I try installing a package using YUM.  I bascially inherit this stuff so i was not part of the build process.  I have some 50 odd VM RHEL 6.4 servers thats been cloned.  When i try to do a YUM install package comes back with AOS that is not the server that i'm using.  Any help would be appreciated.


Hello Michael,

Are those VM's sharing the same system ID:

cat /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid | grep ID

Do you have RHN account to check our articles?

"When running up2date or yum, a message indicates that my RHN account has been disabled for 'Abuse of Service'. What can I do? https://access.redhat.com/site/solutions/8165"

I would recommend you to raise a case as well through:
