Was told by one of the vendor selling Ivanti (LanDesk related)
patch mgmt product that RedHat had since controlled it such
that any products that do patching for RHEL must have a
Satellite server with valid subscriptions for each RHEL endpoints
to be patched.
We don't want to do 'yum' (ie permit backend servers' connecting
So without Satellite, is there any products our there that could
do patching of RHEL endpoints?
Is this requirement to have Satellite something that Bigfix also
require? Seems like the vendor selling Satellite is not aware.
Is there any scripts or tools out there that could pull all the
patches down with a single RHEL subscription, build a patch
repository which can be propagated down to our RHEL
endpoints? I recall an ex-colleague who has built an RHEL
VM that could do something like this but I've lost touch with
Some years ago, a member in SunManagers list shared with
me that Satellite could patch Solaris as well (possibly that's
in the days of RHEL Ver 4.x): is this still the case today that
Satellite could patch Solaris? What about Ubuntu, Debian,
& CentOS Linuxes?
