For some reason rhn_check (and yum) try to contact the servers in the

from the spacewalk server.

But this is expected and working as designed -- you can mix
yum-rhn-plugin (registered against Spacewalk or Satellite or RHN
hosted) with normal yum repositories and if you have the
repositories configured and enabled, they will be used as well for
any yum operation.

It's expected and working as designed, but it *is* an issue that's been raised
before so I guess he's questioning the design.  People are botching it with
pre/post scripts or rebuilding packages to avoid hitting external mirrors.
It'd be rather nice if there was already a snippet in there to do that, so all
we'd have to do would be to click a check box to opt out of using external
mirrors.
