What I'm doing right now is a weekly, three-part, two-phase process:
2) Run a yum update on all non-production servers.
3) Run a yum update on all production servers, tell it no, capture the transaction, and put it in the root directory.
1) Run a yum load-transaction on the previous week's captured transaction.
I've put the steps in the wrong order to help explain the process, which should give you an idea how convoluted it seems.
This works fine for now--it's better than nothing, which is what it replaces--but it's potentially fragile, and I don't want to put effort into bullet-proofing it which I could better use in learning the better way to do this. So: What is that better way? And how do I do it?
