yum update script

Hi everyone,
I need a script to trigger yum update on a bunch of servers in a seperate list. The list would contain ip address only.
The script would be run from a rhel server on the same subnet as the other servers, and it already has the public key in the other servers authorized keys file

The script im starting with is below...but it would like for the script to reference a list of ip address in the same directory as the script.

#!/bin/bash
# You must have ssh public and private key installed.
#
hosts=(
"ssh root@192.168.100.10 -t sudo  '/usr/bin/yum update -y'"

"ssh root@192.168.100.11 -t sudo  '/usr/bin/yum update -y' "
      )
# simply run array item
for c in "${hosts[@]}"
do
    $c
done

#!/bin/bash
hosts=$(cat $1)
for i in $hosts ;do
ssh root@$i -t sudo '/usr/bin/yum update -y'
done

then call script with

./scriptname filename.txt

filename.txt should have one ip in one line

each line one ip
