Update - Errata Information

More than just package delivery, the RHN Update Module gives you full errata and detailed information, helping you understand the "how" and "why" of maintaining your machines.

Systems Grouping

Develop groups of systems for easy administration and maintenance. Maintain several systems at once rather than administering each system individually. Updating an entire group of systems is as quick and easy as updating a single system.

Administrator Permissions

You can assign roles to administrators to give them the least amount of privilege necessary. Also, group your systems according to your needs and then assign permissions to different administrators. This allows your organization to distribute the maintenance of systems to different groups, while upholding security guidelines.

Scheduled Updates

Schedule a certain errata update for a system or group, allowing your organization to take advantage of scheduled downtime for errata maintenance if desired. Or, avoid manual updates completely with Auto Update - setting your servers to automatically pull down the latest errata as soon as it is available.

Provisioning Module

Configuration management

Avoid manually having to perform configuration management to each system. Easily configure text files for individual or groups of systems. Combine with Kickstart actions to enable a complete provisioning action.

Multi-state rollback

Multi-state rollback allows your system to return to a previous state or configuration instantly. No more manual removing of packages, trying to remember preexisting configurations, or using rollback through multiple iterations. Red Hat Network records these states for you and makes the process quick and easy.

Monitoring Module

Probe suites

Quickly deploy many probes to many systems. Probe suites are powerful tools that can save the time spent creating and configuring the same probes across systems.
