Hi Troy

A system like that is definitely custom built and I don't believe there's a
system available anywhere off the shelf. As long as you have a good
skiplist, you can always run yum or any of the updaters that you may use on
a cron nightly.. Just a thought.

Is anyone aware of a Red Hat Network alike system of server package update
status that could be adapted for CentOS3? I'm not interested in the complete
management aspect (channels, scheduling remote updates,
etc) but merely the ability to see your list of systems and determine which
are out of date with XXX packages. If you happen to manage a large-ish
number of RHES3 systems, you know what a boon this is. ;)

Ideas? Thx,
