    Check Updates Security with up2date


    Hello,

    I have some servers with Red Hat 4 and other with Red Hat 5.
    In Red Hat 4, I don't have installed yum's package and I would like to know what is the same command of : "yum check-update --security" but with up2date in rhel4

    Thanks so much!

    The Red Hat Knowledge Base has a good article on up2date/rpm commands and their equivalent yum commands.

    Thanks for the quickly response, however, in this article I don't find something for "yum check-update --security"

    Thanks

    Best Regards

    "yum check-update" shows me the same output as "yum list updates" and according to that article, that is the same as "up2date -l". As for the "--security" switch, what is that? I get an error when I try to pass that to yum.

    It is a dependency: yum-security is a RedHat yum plugin that allows you to specify only security updates, not bugfixes.

    If you look in Google "yum-security" you will see what is that (I can't post websites yet )

    thanks

    Ah, cool - just installed it. Yeah, I don't see a way to do a security-specific listing of packages using up2date.

    Can you not install yum on your RHEL 4 box and configure it to use RHN? Isn't that what RHEL 5/6 do? I really don't know, I don't use/have a RHN, but I've used yum to update a RHEL 6 box at some other location once that did have RHN configured.

    Anyones know something about this?
    I haven't find any information to do this with up2date. I can access via red hat portal, but its not a good solution. I spend a lot of time.

    thanks

    How do you get up2date to run? I am trying to update net-snmp and get the error:
    There was an SSL error: [('SSL routines', 'SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE', 'certificate verify failed')]
