We have 68 Centos server diff version 4.X 5.X, we dont want internet for update errata patches. Alternative like redhat satellite server in centos which use to update all the server local.

you could setup a local yum repository on one server and update your server with that. here is a doc which also describes how to include updates.

a more sophisticated way would be using spacewalk. it is the open source software on which red hat builds its satellite server.

i've added a link to an how-to which describes what you are looking for. – Christian Jan 30 '10 at 10:12
Spacewalk will also give a a sampling of management and provisioning features as well. It's a good baby step to something more elaborate like cobbler/puppet/func. – Scott Pack Jan 30 '10 at 13:34
