cannot update machine using yum updates of another machine
 
I have installed centos 5 on my machine and updated that machine using ( yum update ) command ,but my problem is that how can I update my other machines using that updates??????? ,Because every time it is not possible to download packages(Because it is around 1GB),so how can I use that updates???


I know that it should be prasent in the /var/cache/yum directory so did the tar file of it and melt it on the other machine but after that how to update it locally

Have a look at the yum-downloadonly package. Once you have the packages you can redistribute them locally.

if you have already downloaded updates.. i think they should be present in /ver/cache/yum like something...

make a tar file of all present in yum cache and then distribute..

Set up file sharing on the machines and set the initial downloader to be a repository for the other machines.

Have a look at the createrepo package. It is used to setup a local yum repo(once you have the rpms).
