4.4 Updating a System by Using Yum

Yum integration with ULN makes it possible to run most yum commands on the system after registering it with ULN and configuring the channels to which the system is subscribed. You can use the yum install and yum update commands to handle general package installation or updates.

To update a system to use the latest packages that are available on ULN, run:

# yum update

The ULN integration with yum enables you to run commands like yum repolist to obtain a listing of the ULN channels to which the system is subscribed. You can search for packages and obtain package information in the same way as you would if you were using yum to access the Oracle Linux yum server.
