A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

4.151. rhnsd

Updated rhnsd packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The rhnsd packages provide the Red Hat Network Services Daemon, a system service that automatically queries the Red Hat Network servers, determines which packages on the machine need to be updated, and performs appropriate actions.

Bug Fix

The /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhnsd configuration file allows the system administrator to specify how many minutes the rhnsd service waits before checking the Red Hat Network for available updates and actions again. The previous version of the rhnsd service would incorrectly log a message telling the user that this interval is specified in seconds. This update corrects the wording of this log message.
All users of rhnsd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
