Spacewalk is an open source Linux systems management solution.Spacewalk is the upstream community project from which the Red Hat Satellite product is derived.A central web interface allows viewing of systems, their associated software update status, and initiating update actions.Spacewalk also provides provisioning capabilities, allowing you to manage your systems throughout their lifecycle.The following case studies demonstrate how Cause Mapping can be used to document problems and identify solutions in various industries.Select an industry on the left to view its case studies on the right.At Think Reliability, we live by the philosophy that the only reason to dispute causes is lack of evidence.
The relationship between Spacewalk and Red Hat Satellite 5 was analogous to the relationship between Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Via Provisioning, Spacewalk enables you to kickstart provision systems and manage and deploy configuration files.
Spacewalk also has virtualization capabilities to enable you to provision, control, manage, and monitor virtual KVM and Xen guests.
All of these are patched individually via their appropriate yum repos.
Can anyone suggest a method of centralising patch management for these servers?
