rpm database type and utility like windows update services


Can Anybody tell me
1, What type of Databse is used/maintain by redhat 9 updates (as windows maintain updates in sql server[I saw it in wus])
2, Is there any utility like WUS(windows update service for windows) to distribute the redhat updates over a network.(as far as I know up2date can collect the available updates but no mechanism to distribute like wus)

1. I don't know. I would guess postgresql/mysql or the like for preferences. The rpm database isn't complex enough to warrant using either.

2. http://www.redhat.com/software/rhn/architecture/

RH uses Up2Date, YUM and Apt4Rpm. All of which create a list when you sync them which is checked against your rpm database of installed programs. Full answers should be available from the RH website.

If you think that nobody understood your question, can you be more specific or rephrase it so that we understand it.

I am trying to make patch management system for all operating systems.
We have make done it for windows as it use windows update services to collect and distribute update.
Wus use sqlserver database with name susdb.We get all the list of updates and the physical place where they are placed.
Same thing we are wanting to do for linux.
Thats why I asked the question.

I think Redhat Network and Novell ZenWorks can do something similar. You could also create your own apt or yum repository, download the updaes from the update server of your distro, then configure your workstation to automatically update from your yum or apt repository at a certain time. Redhat/Fedora already allows this using YUM.
