    Does Patch Manager work with OS updates (Linux/Unix)

    Alen Geopfarth

      Our Oracle team wants to have the Oracle servers allowed through the firewall with unrestricted access to allow for automated patching of the Linux OS straight from Red Hat. I generally consider this a "bad idea" especially because those servers are used in the processing of customer accounts (things like credit card numbers, bank information, etc.) I would like to put a patch management server in our environment and point the Oracle servers to that box for updates. It looks like Patch Manager can do this, but I did not see Linux specifically spelled out.

       

      Thanks
