    Hello,

    One of my server is running RHEL WS release 3 (Taroon Update 1). I know it's quite old and I can't use up2date to upgrade the box. Not supported by the provider.

    What I wanted to know is, can I use Yum to update my RHEL? Can someone provide me details if possible..

    Also, is it easy for me to keep RHEL on the box or switch it to something else using Yum?


    Thanks!

    Yum is used with Fedora, and can't be used with RHEL. You can install Fedora and then use yum.

    Go on, have a guess
    You can only really get RedHat updates for RHE through up2date from RedHat themselves, which is the tool they use.

    You'd be much better off with CentOS rather than Fedora as you really shouldn't use Fedora on a production server at all. You'll be in a familiar environment with CentOS as it's essentially RHE without the proprietary apps or license costs.
