I have downloaded patches files for RHEL. Is it possible to patch RHEL machine using available fixlet if I copied the patches file to SH1 folder?
I’m not sure you can get the patches without the subscription and if you do have them then that would raise some other questions I think?
Lets say I just want store all patches files to sha1 folder and patch the rhel without download plugin or certificate. Is it possible to do? I tried and it failed.
You can’t just store the files in your sha1 folder and use the existing fixlets, but you could host and use a custom repo. Check https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SS6MER_9.5.0/com.ibm.bigfix.patch.doc/Patch/Patch_RH/c_manage_custom_repositories.html
