Automate update process


I have around 50 ubuntu and centos machines to administer. I'm looking for a way to remotely update ( using apt and yum ) when new package updates are available. I do not want to automate it fully. I'm looking for a web panel, where I can view all these machines and the updates that are available in each one. Once I review and confirm, it gets updated and I can view the progress in the web panel. Is there any such tools available to accomplish this?

Consider something like Rundeck, it'll allow you to run specific commands across servers based on a load of criteria. For example, we have different saved jobs that can be run to go out and run updates for test, preprod, and production environments.
With that number of machines you might also want to use Puppet or Salt for automatic configuration management.

that's why you always could and still can Telnet (or rsh, or ssh) to hardware routers (like cisco or sun blade) and most any server ? (ok, some cheap store ones only have web interface maybe)

is there a reason your unwilling to automate using scripting (automation by keyboard press) instead of finding a pushbutton solution (automation by mouse press) ? i think future thinking: you can't voice dictate to a script but maybe not to a mouse click unless it's possiby siri ?

Ansble.
You'll have to figure out a way to look at the log file in a web browser... so maybe Ansible Tower (which aint free).
Or you cant just tail the Ansible log while it's running.

I think in ubuntu you can do automated update by commenting out a line from false to true.https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/servergu...c-updates.html

Set your host update computer as the source.

OP would have to modify his host file to to achieve that; right?
