Command line update utility ro Red Hat?

Is there any type of utility that I can run from the command line that will go out and get any patches/security that the system needs and automatically install them? Similar to windows update? I know on my RH8.0 laptop there is the little check box in the corner that does pretty much this but can I access this feature on a server without a GUI enviroment? This would be for a RH7.3 machine.

In Red Hat 8.0 the command would be up2date--I don't know if 7.3 has that. If you don't find it, try the Red Hat Website and see if it is something you can download.

if you dont run step one then i assume you have to apply the patches manually.
