RHEL updates


Hi,

I purchased one(1)RHEL AS license and only one(1) server can get updates from redhat site. Is't capable that other servers can get updates to license server?

If you've only purchased 1 license (for 1 named machine), then only one (named) server can talk to RH.
I'm not sure of the legalities if you then copy those to other servers.
You will definitely only get support for the named box, but if the others are identical, then any prob/soln on that will occur/be fixed on the others.

If you want RHEL updates for free for any num of boxes, use CENTOS (free copy of RH, sans RH logos and also sans paid support) instead.
