Is there a SUSE patch server ? What I'm looking to do is create the equivalent of a Microsoft WSUS server. Have a single server where I can have it download the patches and then have my servers get the patches from it. That way I'm only downloading the patches once.

Thanks

Hi
Yes, it's called SMT (Subscription Management Tool);

SUSE's Subscription Management Tool (SMT) is the free one, and SUSE
Manager does that plus a bunch of other policy-based management of SUSE
(and possibly other distros too) systems.
