Information about RHUI

I have some questions about RHUI (I just have the acronym and I know that is related to Operating System updates):

  • What is RHUI?
  • How can I check with a BASH script if it is working?
  • How can I check with a BASH script if there are any available patches?

Thanks for your time and input.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

- Red Hat Update Infrastructure.

- $ rhui-manager status --code ; where an output of 0 means the RHUI is running.

- Not sure if possible, but you can check this for list of commands available:

Ah, a last thing, sorry!

Is this command working from the client or I have to be on the server where RHUI was installed?

Sorry Omar but I have a very last thing:
Is this command working from the client or I have to be on the server where RHUI was installed?

Should be on server. Never tried from client.

Ouch...

So there is no way from the client to know if RHUI is working fine?
