Is there a way to effectively
yum update to a specific point release in RHEL 5 and 6?
When a new point release is rolled out, the powers that be in my organisation put it through acceptance testing, which can take some time to complete - currently I've heard that the fairly newly released RHEL 6.7 breaks something to do with Veritas that a large proportion of the organisation uses and so we have not yet accepted it.
There are also times when we are building a server for a project and the project have already agreed that a vendor can have a specific version of RHEL (we seem to have a number of vendors that say their applications are only certified to run on specific versions).
The majority of our servers are virtualised (VMware) and are 'built' by deploying a pre-made/tested/QAd/approved template, then configured with the correct network settings/users/etc. - we note that there are better ways, and they are being explored and set through - ah hem- various acceptance testing...
We have a couple of mirror repo servers (one for 5, one for 6), but no Satellite.
So, if I have just deployed a VM which is sitting at RHEL 6.5 and I want to get to the latest accepted version of 6.6, is there anyway I can do this?
It seems that it should be easy, just install the package versions that comprise a specific release, but I can't find a way to easily do this, or even scrape a list and have it upgrade...
