Is Redhat satellite is also able to push updates (patches) for windows machine also OR just for Rhel based machine.


Hello Hidehiko Harano

To answer your question, Red Hat Satellite servers are specifically designed with Red Hat Linux in mind, and while Red Hat would love to rule the world, their master plan has yet to include Red Hat Satellite from pushing updates to Microsoft Windows. I imagine you already know that Microsoft already has their own product called “WSUS”.

But that being said, many companies are switching from Microsoft products to Red Hat, or other Linux derivatives.
