Today we will look at an interesting error message and its resolution.
I have encountered this issue multiple times during redhat satellite migration from 5 to 6 and most of the times this trick resolved my issue.
I. Error Message

We need to write 0 in front of enabled option to disable the rhnplugin.
To get the latest repo from satellite without this error message.
[root@ngelinux5~]# cat /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/rhnplugin.conf [main] enabled = 0 gpgcheck = 0 timeout = 120 # You can specify options per channel, e.g.: # #[rhel-i386-server-5] #enabled = 1 # #[some-unsigned-custom-channel] #gpgcheck = 0 [root@ngelinux5~]#
