Updating rhel4

Red Hat Enterprise Linux is released in server versions for x86, x86-64, Itanium, Power PC and IBM System z, and desktop versions for x86 and x86-64.

updating rhel4-83

Running the cron off of the management server will update the YUM repo with the updates available for the packages install on the management server which may not contain the update for the optional package installed on the client. Each client is configured to query the respoistory for any updates, from the management server. I can't really see the problem, could you elaborate please?

A fresh install of RHEL on a client will contain subset of all of the packages installed on the management server.

On the clients I added a repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d/companyx.y I ran yum update on the client server and it performed perfectly.

I reliazed at that point I didn't have a method of keeping the yum update repo up to date.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux is often abbreviated to RHEL, although this is not an official designation.

The first version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux to bear the name originally came onto the market as "Red Hat Linux Advanced Server".

In 2003 Red Hat rebranded Red Hat Linux Advanced Server to "Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS", and added two more variants, Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES and Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS.

Red Hat uses strict trademark rules to restrict free re-distribution of their officially supported versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, but still freely provides its source code.

After the fact we would then register the system and use RHN to keep the system up to date.
