Re: Redhat up2date rpms to date



That would be my preferred way, unfortunately the comapany insist I
have o download all the updates first then apply
 them to the servers.
I have been told to do it the following (tried and trusted way)
This means having to use up2date -du.
cd /var/spool/updates
mkdir /var/spool/updates/kernel
mv kernel* to /var/spool/updates/kernel
rpm -ivh *.rpm
cd /var/spool/updates/kernel
rpm -*.kernel.xxx
rpm -ivh kernel-utils.xxx

but of course as I work around the boxes newer updates may arrive.

:(
