Can we use ManageIQ as a patch management tool?

I don’t know ManageIQ. I just read some documentation and I could see that you could do a lot of things with it.

I would like to know if it could be used as a patch management solution for linux VMs ?

  • report on the machine update rate
  • launch package update procedures

Thanks for your help

Hi, yes it would probably be great for this. You can run SmartState Analysis scans on your Linux VMs to see what the current package versions are, and run Ansible playbooks on each to install updates if required.


Thanks for your response
