Ok, just verified: If I remove the .repo file for epel, the "epel/x86_64" is 
gone. But how does yum know about the other repository? Where is that defined? 
Does yum have a plugin that lets it query the correct repositories directly 
from spacewalk?

Avi - interesting point:
# yum repolist |grep epel
 * epel: mirror.de.leaseweb.net
epel/x86_64                        Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 7  12,278
!epel7-centos7-x86_64              EPEL 7 for CentOS 7 (x86_64)           13,357

I think the latter is the one defined in spacewalk. However there seems to be 
not corresponding yum repo in /etc/yum.repos.d - is that how it should be?
So all I would need to to is delete the local definition of epel?

There may be a misunderstanding here, but Spacewalk does not generate anything 
in /etc/yum.repos.d/. You don't see any repo definitions on the client side, 
it's all done in Spacewalk.

What is the output of "yum repolist" on a client after it has registered with 
Spacewalk? If there are channels associated with the activation key you used, 
they should be automatically enabled. If not, you may have to enable the 
channels manually via the web UI or spacecmd.
