Check4update for SME Server
Check4updates is a contrib which regularly checks the determined repositories and send email to the admin, for informing of all new rpms which need an update
You need to enable stephdl repository
This contrib is currently held in an external non default repository. You must first configure the stephdl repository on your SME server by following the steps here stephdl (if not already configured).
You can check the repo status as follows
db yum_repositories show stephdl
If you receive no output then the repo is not configured on your SME server.
Then run the following commands to install the Check4updates contrib on your SME Server.
- for sme8
yum --enablerepo=stephdl install smeserver-check4updates
- for sme9
yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install smeserver-check4updates
You have to set the repositories you want to check, you must enabled them before as it is asked on this page
Repositories have to be separated by a coma ','
config setprop check4updates repositories fws,stephdl
Then activate the database changes as follows:
