You can set access policies for an individual machine or groups of existing machines as well as set a default access policy for new machines.
For example, you might use a default deny policy, in which machines that have just installed Ksplice Uptrack cannot receive updates from the Uptrack servers until you specifically authorize them (see Figure 8): Figure 8.
To enable autoinstall, set flag during installation. It is a scalable way to ensure that updates get installed quickly as they become available, regardless of when they are released.
Please note that enabling autoinstall does not mean the Ksplice Uptrack client itself is automatically upgraded.
Maybe you manage Uptrack-enabled machines for other people and want to let them use the service while still having control over which machines have access.
It's easy to customize your Ksplice Uptrack access policies to get the access control you want!
I have been using different repositories to update PHP to latest version but most of them break rpm one or two, which may let to unstable Server.
Ksplice Uptrack updates your running kernel in memory.
Under this plan, you would install all the updates available via both Ksplice Uptrack and your package manager.
Ksplice Uptrack also works great in environments where it is desirable to stay with a particular original kernel version (for example, because of third-party modules that are compiled against that kernel), but you want to stay up to date with all the important security and reliability updates for your kernel. This feature is currently available for Ubuntu 12.04, 11.10, 11.04, and 10.04 LTS and for Fedora 17 and 16.
