Linux box as local patch server?
2012-05-30 16:25:33 GMT
Sadly, our shop has begun a migration away from Sun iron/Solaris to commodity iron/VMware/Red Hat Linux. <sniff> I've been asked to plan conversion of as many of the Solaris boxes as possible to Linux. Currently, my PCA setup is a "local patch server" on my in-house network that all of the individual Solaris boxes point to for patching, and the local patch server is then the sole box that pulls patchdiag.xref and patches from Oracle. Question: Can anyone think of a reason that the PCA local patch server could NOT reside on a Linux server? Thanks! Lee
