This question already has an answer here:
I'm working with a large database platform (Or#&%@) that requires a specific revision level of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In this case, it needs EL6.2 in order to retain support and compatibility with several DB features that we intend to use.
What is the cleanest, most elegant way to update this system to the latest 6.2 revision with updates, without pulling the EL6.4 packages down?
That approach did not work on the system in question.
