Update Red Hat Enterprise Linux's Packages Only To Specific Point Release

TRA asked:

Let’s say that I have one RHEL6.2 64bit server running. Current latest version available is 6.4. Running “yum update” will update my server up to 6.4 straight away. What if I want to update only to certain point release?

For example, I want to update RHEL6.2 server only to RHEL6.3, not to 6.4. Any idea?

Thanks in advance,

My answer:


Use subscription-manager to set the point release you want to lock your system to.

subscription-manager release --set=6.3
