Updated yum-rhn-plugin and rhn-client-tools packages that add an enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Red Hat Network Client Tools provide programs and libraries that allow a system to receive software updates from Red Hat Network (RHN). yum-rhn-plugin allows yum to access a Red Hat Network server for software updates.
These packages have been updated to support the Red Hat Network Satellite Server Maintenance Window, allowing a user to download scheduled packages and errata before the start of the maintenance window.
Users of rhn-client-tools and yum-rhn-plugin are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement. Note that this feature is disabled by default. For information on how to enable it, refer to https://access.redhat.com/site/solutions/42227
