how to install package to 200 servers


I have 200 Redhat server , they are Redhat 5 & 6 , eg. 5.1 , 5.2 , 6.1 ,6.2 ... different distro.

I want to standard openssl to a same version ( now they are in different openssl version ) , that mean I want the openssl version in all server are the same.

I have only 1 Redhat subscription .

what is the best method to do that ?

thanks

Check with RedHat on their prefered methodology especially if you're dealing with systems as old as RHEL 5

Simple; pay for EVERY server you're using. There are multiple tools like satellite you can use to update many servers from one...Red Hat support can walk you through what they have when you pay for the rest of your servers. There are tools like spacewalk or puppet as well, but if you've got unsupported servers (and ALL of the RHEL 5 are TOTALLY UNSUPPORTED at this point, unless you're paying big $$$ for extended), chances are the latest crypto isn't going to work.

Exclamation Caution!!!

Investing substantial time in Web researching is often the optimal way to a solution.
In this case, the keywords would be: rpm (yum/dnf use this) to install a package
And the concept of distributing a file (.rpm pkg) to multiple systems, and running that command on them.

This, from a web-search of: rhel distributed software update solutions
includes commercial ($paid) options, but since you purchased only one subscription, you're probably looking for a free manual 'home-grown' option.

Let us know what you decided on, as the next step in your task.

Edit p.s. I was slowly composing this while #3 wisely pointed out that:
'home-grown' 'hack it togeher' solutions may not work out well!!!

One more thought: I wonder why people/businesses risk trying to avoid spending money by using obsolete&unsupported, when this will lead to disasters like the M$Win(Xp) NIH etc...
Also, for my learning, I searched for: problems updating old openssl rhel versions
And found: https://access.redhat.com/solutions/2548641 , "all now broken", more...
So, I added Caution emoji&title.

I'm not really sure if that was possible at all. Probably you need to compile/build the same sources on all platforms you have - if you want exactly the same version (and you will not be able to upgrade any more).

Wow! You mean release upgrade, right?
Sounds like a RHCSA/RHCE learning objective!!!

Make your own repository, make rpm package from source to whatever version you want and put it in it, point all servers to that repository as priority repository. This is out of head and without doing it myself with RPM packages, but something like that should work.

@dejank: But would need to build a .rpm for (on?) each OSreleaseVersion, right?
Thanks!! (Tho OP hasn't been back, might as well use this 1starThread for learning & future searchers)

Have you heard the story about the man asked how to get somewhere who replied, "Well, If I were going there, I wouldn't start from here"?

Your question demonstrates the sort of problems that you can run into when having a mixture of partially compatible systems, except that some of the problems could be much worse. Some day you've got to get everything standardised. If your business just can't afford 200 licences, then you could always use CentOS. If the worst comes to the worst, put Red Hat on one server and CentOS on the rest: all the latest version.
