Must one register with redhat to use up2date against a local repo?
Yes. At the moment at least, though I don't have any
plans to change that at this point.
One problem i had was caused by an old systemid file from the 7.3
No matter what i typed i got the error shown below. It would be nice
if rhn_register had a --force option or even better ask if it should
ignore or use the the current systemid file.
`up2date --register` or `rhn_register --register` will
"force" a reregister.
