What utility do I run to maintain/update software pkgs in RHES?
 
Hi there,

I have been using SuSE 9 for the last year and am familiar with YaST and the software update utilities it has. I have just installed RHES 4 and am not sure where to begin. First of all I need to set up multipathing to our SAN and am not sure how the RHES pros prefer to update and query for software. Is there a Redhat utility available that everyone uses? Anyway, I know this is real general, but some direction here would help.

Thanks,

Yes it is called up2date and is part of a paid subscription to the RHN. Please review the manuals for the details and instructions.

Hey Lenard,

Thanks for your input. I actually used up2date this week when I called RHN for support when in installed firefox. If that's the tool to maintain my system, I'll start looking into it.

Thanks again,
