Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 202821
should have quiet mode for cron jobs
Last modified: 2012-06-20 12:19:36 EDT
The default configuration of a rackspace server is to have a file
named /etc/cron.d/rs_rhncheck with the following contents:
0 2 * * * root /usr/sbin/up2date --nox -u
This means that on most days I receive an email telling me that "All packages
are currently up to date" which is of little value and is annoying when there
are multiple machines doing it.
I believe that we need a quiet mode to instruct up2date to not display
anything (IE skip the email) when it finds nothing to do.
Please include this in RHEL 4.5 as I expect that Rackspace and many other
providers will be running RHEL 4.x machines for their customers for a long
