Hi everybody,

is it a good idea to have yum run automatically every night ? Since it
also updates things like sql server and this sometimes causes trouble
I'm wondering wether it is a good idea. Anybody has good/bad experience
with it ? Are there solutions to have yum run savely and not touch any
running things or rewrite configs ?

My experience is: No, this isn't a good idea. Neither yum, nor the
repos, nor the rpm are in a shape to leave yum running unattended.

/me ducks and waits for flames ;)


Isn't there the Problem, that you have to submit the updating of packages?
Therefor you would have to run a script.
Or maybe there is a switch to tell yum not to ask.
But I'd think the question is not there for nothing.
