Is there a way to make yum update to a certain patchlevel?
I always promise my devs the servers between Dev, Test, Acc and Prod are the same with versions of software. But when u use yum via the redhat network it will just update to the latest versions regardless.
the problem arrives when u roll out to a server beyond dev or Test. You can of course exclude important packages from this update process. But al kinds of other packages will still update to a newer version if there is a new version available since u updated last. This way your servers wont exactly be the same.
Is there a way (via yum) to be certain you will get the exact same package configuration as the other servers in your DTAP street.
