I'm going to upgrade cent06.2 to 6.3, but I have a question. IF I do yum upgrade, would it go on update everything from repository or can I just use one repository to update  rather than   yum  update,  can I use yum update and provide the repository name?

To specify repository you can mention
--disablerepo=\* and --enablerepo=name_of_repo

OR

You can go to /etc/yum.repos.d folder and for each repo file, you can mention enable=0 except the one you want.

If for any reason --disablerepo=\* doesn't work, you can try "*" instead of \*

I created the profile and put it in /etc/yum.repos.d  , but when I do yum repolist all, it is not showing. Do I need to do anything?
