yumcommand in the same way as regular Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems. Red Hat Virtualization Host (RHVH) can use the
yumcommand for updates; however, installing additional packages is not currently supported. It is highly recommended that you use
yumto update your systems regularly, to ensure timely application of security and bug fixes. Updating a host includes stopping and restarting the host. If migration is enabled at cluster level, virtual machines are automatically migrated to another host in the cluster; as a result, it is recommended that host updates are performed at a time when the host's usage is relatively low.
