Can rhnsd service be safely stopped?

Post by phil.e » 2019/06/13 16:12:33

Can the rhnsd service be stopped without breaking something else?

The yum repositories are local and do not contact redhat or any public centos repositories for updates

Will it cause any issues contacting a local Spacewalk server if rhnsd is disabled?

Thanks,

Sorry, I should have noted that this is a centos 6 system.

But, while I'm at it, does it apply to centos 7 as well?

AFAIK rhnsd is not needed per se.

Though it is if you are using Spacewalk.

I went to try disabling it on a machine to test and see what would happen, and gave a message like "Stopping Spacewalk Daemon".

That would be a show stopper, so no go - gotta tell them "can't do it"

Thanks for the inputs.
