Removing "rhsm" and "rhn" packages

Post by afewgoodman » 2020/04/25 06:31:27

Hi,

If I try to remove following packages, does it damage current system?

[bchoi@localhost centos-updates-7.7]$ yum list available | grep rhsm

[bchoi@localhost centos-updates-7.7]$ yum list available | grep rhn

Probably not since I don't have any of those installed here and my system works perfectly (for some definition of...).

Make sure you don't specify yum -y and run yum remove \*rhn\* \*rhsm\* then stop and read the list of packages it intends to remove before you say Y. If it appears to be removing anything that you need then do not proceed. You can always use yum history undo last to undo the change but it's better not to have done it in the first place.
