Hi,

I have configured YUM repository on a server and we have 10 linux machine (clients).

Is there any way we can install a package on all the 10 machines from YUM repository server?

Please help me.

yes.

add a file such as this to your /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory on all 10 clients

Code:
[repo name]
name=repo name & description
baseurl=http://host/path
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPMGPGKEY (if using gpgchecking)
and then on each client

Code:
yum install packagename

nope, but you can do it quite easily with puppet
Code:

if you are prepared to learn the language

You could also do a script with expect to automatically logon and run desired yum command, then logout.

If you have yum-updatesd running and pointing(exclusively) to your local repo, it will handle it for you.

Errrr, to UPDATE or INSTALL the packege? Only way to INSTALL package with yum-updatesd (as far as I know) is to previosly install a fake package with wanted package as dependencies, and then to make new version of the fake packages with new dependence (new package you want to install).
