RHEL Install Issue (6.3 to 6.5)

I have a VM on which I rolled out an RHEL 6.3 image, Now I have all filesets necessary to go to RHEL 6.5 via "YUM", What command should I run to find out the missing filesets which will bump up the level to 6.5

What do you mean by 'ind out the missing filesets which will bump up the level to 6.5?'

If you invoke 'yum update', it will show you all packages and dependencies that will be updated.

Just do a normal update and it will roll to 6.5 by itself.


yum -y update

So for example, I have 6.4 filesets and 6.5 filesets, Is there a command in RHEL that I can query to find out what filesets are needed for 6.4 or 6.5....i know that "yum update" will update to what ever the repo's are set

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

The only rpm that control the 6.5 version is the redhat-release package.

cat /etc/redhat-release
rpm -aq|grep redhat-release

 The dependencies (or filesets you called) are independent. Exactly what are you trying to archive?

I am not talking about dependencies, I was talking about the base 6.5 OS, What command should I run to see the missing filesets which will take the OS from 6.3 to 6.5 or 6.3 to 6.4, considering my repository is up to date via RHN.

Can you post a screenshot or output of the "filesets" you referring to?

None are required to update RHEL. Reread my comment on the following -

Ok let me tell you an example, I have AIX OS and my OS is at 6.1 TL6 and if I want to go to 6.1 TL8, I type in the command

#oslevel -rl 6100-08

This command gives all the required update filesets the OS needs to upgrade from 6.1 TL6 to 6.1 TL8

So On a similar grounds I was asking the question for RHEL 6.3 and 6.5, Looks like RHEL doesnot have the capability to show this.

When you run #yum update then it will show you all the packages which can be updated by comparing the current installed image and the available pkg's over RHN.

Then you can see what all pkgs will actually update when you choose "Yes" after running #yum update

I am sorry Sandy but I still didnot get my answer, My question is about how to list filesets at various releases..

SandyCommented:
#yum repolist
#yum --enable-repo=<select_repo> update list

So after doing this if I do "sudo yum check-update" It will list all the update filesets available in the repo, So lets assume that we have a repo with all the update filesets upto 6.5, If I just want to update the level from 6.3 to 6.5, I do Yum update all, this is understood,

How do I update from 6.3 to 6.4 ..?? from the same repo and how do I list the file....for 6.4 only

SandyCommented:
that is what i had mentioned by choosing the specific update or by disabling other repo's...

SandyCommented:
or in case if it is just about security patches then you can follow the below commands also


      

Install the yum-security plugin:

yum install yum-security

Then you can do:

yum --security update-minimal kernel

IF you have RHN login you can also follow below procedure of selecting errarta manually and can apply it to system.

You cannot cannot compare AIX to RHEL, they are different.

RHEL 6.3/4/5 use the same repository and it is the only requirement to update them.
