Issue

  • Getting error as [Errno -2] Name or service not known, when using yum on client registered with RHN Satellite. We are using RHN Satellite in our environment. Yum is used on the Linux client side during bootstrap in order to register Linux client to RHNSS. I noticed that any time yum is called, there is an error thrown "[Errno -2] Name or service not known".
