Question Red Hat Linux System Administration


I'm new to the world of Linux System Administration. I am looking to see if there is a program that you can install on Red Hat that will allow the server to push updates to the clients like Microsoft does with SUS. Any ideas?

You could try making a cron job..I've not tried this one myself but here goes:
!#/bin/sh
/usr/sbin/up2date -p
/usr/sbin/up2date -u

call it up2date.cron and put it in /etc/cron.daily then change permissions of it chmod 755 /etc/cron.daily/up2date.cron
