Hello Matthew,

This error is actually harmless. It means Spacewalk does not have a
specific configuration for ehcache but uses "implicit" one found in 
ehcache-failsafe.xml inside of ehcache-core.jar.

> This started occurring when I upgraded from Spacewalk 2.6 to Spacewalk 2.7. Anyone seen this or know how I can fix it?

It's just an coincidence IMHO. I guess you have RHEL 6 or 7 server where
previous version of Spacewalk used older hibernate with oscache and
switched to newer hibernate + ehcache in 2.7.

Is there anything else suspicious in taskomatic log wrt  repodata update job?
I know it sound silly but does it persist after taskomatic restart?
