How to check new errata and updates for my rhel

Hi Freinds

My question is if i have not registered my RHEL at RHN then how will I check new errata and updates of my rhel servers. As my organisation policy don't allow me to register my RHEL servers at rhn due to security issue.

Thanks & Regards
Charanjit Singh.

If you are not registered, then you get no updates.

The question is, which is more insecure : no updates, or allowing your machine to send status to RedHat ?

What did your organisation pay for ?


check, how, rhel, update
