Offine Patch Analysis Tool for Linux

Anyone know any offline tool for linux patch analysis such as MSBA (microsoft base line analysis,) or patch management via itrc.

Thanks for your help

As far as i know itrc is not an offline tool.
You can check for latest SP (service packs) for your version of linux at the respective site - redhat, novell, debian.

Re: Offine Patch Analysis Tool for Linux

you need this for a machine without internet access? if you have internet access you can get this info on the spot with up2date or yum commands.

if you can't reach the rh servers with those tools, you're gonna have to whip something together in perl or a simple shell script. you will have to decide what your base of comparison will be though (rh ftp server or another machine which is up to date).

with rh you can also check the patch status of a server on the redhat-network (but that, requires internet acccess for you host).

Another option is to setup you own update server - for example satelite server in RedHat. In this case only one server will need access to the internet and other will use it for updates.
