I am wondering since some time how others cope with patch management on OpenSUSE Clients, when you have a bunch of PCs in a network. Somebody who can recommend a open source tool to cover the basics (e.g. a tool automating updates with zypper over ssh or something similar)?
Hello, in YaST | Software You can set automatic upgrade in certain time. And it works. :-) Another possibility is for example to use Konsole, which can send one command to multiple machines. You can then send "zypper dup" to all Your computers. I hope it helps little bit. :-) Best regards, Vojtěch Zeisek
thanks, I know this :-)
What I'm looking for is a piece of software to do "zypper up" for example on 15, 20, or 2000 machines at the same time in a controlled way (building groups of machines before that or so). Now I have to log in via ssh on every machine and do my
# zypper lp # zypper lu # zypper up
an so on...
Shure - if my scripting know how would be better I would write my own mechanism for automating these steps an add some more...
