Chapter 6 Configuring Client Systems for Remote Management

By default, the rhnsd daemon on a client system connects to the Spacewalk server every four hours and performs any updates or actions that you have scheduled. If you install the OSA daemon, you can apply updates and actions to client systems immediately from the Spacewalk server.

To allow you to perform remote configuration of client system from Spacewalk, you can install the remote configuration client packages on the remote system.
