Thanks for the reply.
I am talking about the following scenario. We have some production servers, currently running RedHat. They are not directly connected to repos via Internet. We are upgrading them periodically manually. We want to setup a server which is directly connected to the Yast repositories (Internet) , then we want our production server to only connect to this "Yast Installaion Server" and install/upgrade all the packages.
Such a solution with Redhat is only available with Enterprise edition.
[EDIT]: This functionality of setting up custom repositories is freely available with Debian, but due to some weird company policy, we are not allowed to use Debian.
I have read about Yast Installation server here ..
But the how-to still mentions Enterprise server 9 or something. I wanted to know if this particular functionality is available with OpenSuse (without Enterprise stuff) or not. If not, then what will be the other alternatives to this.
thanks & regards,
