I have several servers and although Cloudmin makes it easy for me to run the yum updates, it still takes up my time.
I wondered what people thought about automating yum updates, maybe a daily cron or something?
My concern is, could an update fail, or somehow bring the server down? In which case when the updates run there is no one there to fix it right away. Or is this unlikely?
What about just automating security updates, can these be done on their own, and if so could we still have issues with things failing?
Just wondered what peoples thoughts are on this matter.
