1.144.1. RHBA-2011:1043: rhnsd bug fix update
An updated rhnsd package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The rhnsd package includes the Red Hat Update Agent that automatically queries the Red Hat Network servers and determines which packages need to be updated on your machine, and runs any actions.
* Previously, it was not possible to reload the Red Hat Update Agent (rhnsd) service configuration properly. This was due to the bug in reading the service configuration during the service startup. The bug has been fixed in this update so that the service configuration can now be reloaded as expected. (BZ#502234
* Previously, the Red Hat Update Agent (rhnsd) failed to find the systemid file if the file was stored in a non-standard location. The fix for the bug has been provided in this update so that the systemid file location is now determined from reading the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date file. (BZ#524886
All users requiring rhnsd are advised to upgrade to this updated package which fixes these bugs.
