Enabling automatic updates in Centos 7 and RHEL 7
In previous posts we’ve seen how to Enable automatic security update in Debian/Ubuntu and in Red hat enterprise or Centos 6, recently I’ve started to work with the new Red Hat Enterprise 7 and I’ve noticed that there are some interesting changes in the way this system can be set to auto update.
The package that allows us to do automatic updates via yum is yum-cron, to do this just open a terminal as root and run the command:
yum -y install yum-cron
This will install the yum-cron package, now it’s time to configure it, the default configuration file it’s /etc/yum/yum-cron.conf.
