NAME
up2date - Configuration file for Spacewalk client programs. DESCRIPTION
Spacewalk client programs, such as rhn_check(8), use a common configuration file at /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date. OPTIONS
enableProxy Use a HTTP Proxy. Can be either 0 (False) or 1 (True). serverURL Remote server URL debug Whether or not debugging is enabled. Can be either 0 (False) or 1 (True). systemIdPath Location of system id file. Expects the path of a file on disk. versionOverride Override the automatically determined system version. Expects a string or blank (do not override the version). httpProxy HTTP proxy in host:port format, e.g. squid.redhat.com:3128 proxyUser The username for an authenticated proxy. proxyPassword The password to use for an authenticated proxy. enableProxyAuth To use an authenticated proxy or not. Can be either 0 (False) or 1 (True). networkRetries Number of attempts to make at network connections before giving up. Expects a positive integer. sslCACert The CA cert used to verify the ssl server. Expects the path of a file on disk. noReboot Disable the reboot action. Can be either 0 (False) or 1 (True). disallowConfChanges Config options that can not be overwritten by a config update action. Expects a semi-colon separated list of config option names. hostedWhitelist Override the default list of URLs the RHN Register client treats as official RHN hosted servers. This only affects the RHN Register graphical- and text-based clients, as it changes some of the options that appear. This option is included for testing purposes only. retrieveOnly If set to 1 (True), package installs done through rhn_check will only download the package, the package will not be installed. FILES

NAME
rhnsd - A program for querying the Spacewalk server for updates and information. SYNOPSIS
rhn_check [options] DESCRIPTION
rhnsd is a background daemon process that periodically polls the Spacewalk server to see if there are any queued actions available. If any are queued, rhnsd will execute those actions. rhnsd is typically started from the initialization (init) scripts in /etc/init.d/rhnsd. when it's time to poll the Spacewalk server for available updates and actions. The default interval is every 240 minutes. The minimum polling interval is 60 minutes. To check for updates, rhnsd runs an external program called rhn_check. This is a small application that actually makes the network connec- tion to Spacewalk. The rhnsd daemon does not listen on any network ports, nor does it ever talk to the network directly. Any network activity is done via the rhn_check utility. rhnsd can be configured by editing the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhnsd. configuration file. This is actually the configuration file the rhnsd initialization script /etc/init.d/rhnsd. uses. OPTIONS
-i, --interval Specify the interval that rhnsd should wait between checking the Spacewalk. Default is 240 minutes, the minimum is 60 minutes. This can also be specified in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhnsd -f, --foreground force the rhnsd process to run in the foreground instead of automatically backgrounding itself, as it does by default. FILES
