I upgraded RHL9 to RH Enterprise Linux ES using linux "upgradeany" during installation. When I do a up2date it still shows as RHL version 9 in Channels and does not pick up any RH EL updates. I deleted all log files, deleted all files from /var/spool/up2date . How to change this ?

As I recall from the RHEL documentation, only upgrades with the Enterprise Linux family are supported and a full install is required to go from RedHat 9 to Enterprise Linux. Howver, you might be able to make what you have work by installing the redhat-release-3ES-7 pacakge, if it isn't already on the system (check with 'rpm -qa | grep redhat-release').
