Description of problem:
If you share an NFS mounted /var/spool/up2date between 2 machines, after doing
an up2date -fu on one box, the RPMs get deleted, making the 2nd box have to
start over and download them all again.

How about a --no-delete-rpm switch or similar ?
Other than this, it looks like NFS mounted /var/spool/up2date would work just fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I thought there was alraedy a "don't delete" configuration option available
under up2date --config.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2003-09-19 11:18:41 EDT
Indeed. That makes it do the right thing.
