spacewalk importing issue

Postby sisalcentos » 2013/06/19 13:06:15

Hi i have an issue importing some centos 4 system in my spacewalk console.

When i register a system i get this error message: rhnreg_ks: ERROR: refreshing remote package list for System Profile

however i found the system in the list of spacewalk (1.9 version)

But I'm receiving this error in my email:
