Provide RPM Update Server to Update All openSUSE/SLED Workstations
*Please be Patient - This is my First FATE request*
Definitions in this Submission
- Workstation : Any openSUSE/SLED installation that functions without direct server support
- Installation Server : Any designated PC that holds a repository for the complete RPM's contained at time of software Release.
Update Server : Any designated PC that holds a repository(s) that contain online update RPM's The 'Server' would be accessible by normal NFS...
et al Services currently available.
The Installation of a PC with openSUSE/SLED requires a huge number of Online Updates a situation that may never change whilst development continues. The Installation of openSUSE has the ability to perform many NFS Installations at one time whilst being able to create 1 repository server for the entire Installation RPM's for future addition of features and groups not included in the base installation.
Along the same notion of an NFS Installation I propose that we an Installation Server or Other to be an Update Server which downloads ALL RPM updates as they become available. Each Workstation then selects Online Updates from the Update Server per chosen update check cycle period. In this way each workstation needs only to connect with the Update Server rather than each workstation downloading its required updates. This has the potential to cut update traffic by the number of workstations installed on a LAN and this weighed against the traffic of downloading ALL updates and the traffic on ALL Online update Server Repositories and Mirrors external to the LAN. The concept is notedly simple however this has a huge technical repercussion and link to FATE #120340. This concept is open for addition to FATE #120340 or it can stand alone at the discretion of Novell.DE Whilst this concept is created by the author the technical impact/problems will require much input from Novell.De and Suse.DE and the author.
