Monday Spotlight: How to Patch Oracle Linux with Enterprise Manager 13c

Simon Hayler
Senior Technical Product Manager

Recently I blogged about an Oracle Developer Community document for configuring iSCSI with Oracle Linux 7 and 6. Continuing my Oracle Linux theme I produced the following Oracle Developer Community post for how to patch Oracle Linux with Oracle Enterprise Manager 13c.

Linux Host Patching is a framework within Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control that keeps hosts updated with security and critical bug fixes.

Framework key features:

  • Set up multiple Linux RPM Repositories based on Oracle Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN) channels

  • Download Advisories (Errata’s) from Oracle ULN

  • Manage RPM repositories and channels (clone channels, copy packages from one channel into another, delete channels)

  • Create  Custom Channels containing user-specified RPM’s

  • Manage configuration file channels (create/delete channels, upload files, copy files from one channel into another)

  • Set up multiple Linux Patching Groups to update a collection of Linux hosts and collect compliance information

  • Allow non-compliant packages to be patched

  • Rollback or uninstall packages from a host

  • Support for Oracle Linux 5, 6 and 7
