By default, Red Hat Network (RHN) will send email notifications when errata or software updates relevant to your server are released. As with any operating system, software updates are constantly being released to fix bugs or address security concerns, and the volume of these emails may become overwhelming.
We recommend that you follow industry standard best practices and install these software updates at least once a month. For more information, please see the following articles:
- How often should I update my Red Hat Enterprise Linux server?
- How do I install Red Hat Enterprise Linux updates?
- Eclipse System Administration Best Practices
If you have any questions about a specific update, you may open a service request with the Linux Technical Support team.
