In /var/spool/up2date are a bunch of files accumulating, and they will
eventually run me out of space in /var. Is it necessary to retain any of
these? Does it suffice to keep, perhaps, just the most recent one?

Here are a few:

AFAIK, you can safely delete them.  In fact, IIRC, if you
execute up2date-config, you can select an option to stop it
archiving all updates there.

The only option I see in up2date-config like this is the one to stop it
from keeping the rpms; at least, the one that says:

After installation, keep binary packages on disk.

I do not have this selected. When up2date is actually running, the rpms
are up there too, but they are deleted after the install step.

1. Red hat Advisories up2date

Little confused.  Maybe someone could explain how this works.  Maybe
someone from Red Hat could add a comment.

I have a system that I installed Red Hat 7.3 on.  And then I ran the
up2date utility.  I ran just fine.  I then figured out that the
configuration
of the paritions/drives was wrong. The easiest way to go was to
reinstall.

Fine I reinstalled and fix the partitions.  But now Red Hat will not
run up2date.
I says I have an entitlements error.  Red Hat network list the
machine's Entitlement as DEMO.  Was I only allowed to run up2date
once?

How do I download all the bug fixes and secutity patches if I do not
subscribe to up2date? Through the Red Hat General Advisories page.
OK if I have to download all these Advisories what order do I apply
them in? Oldest to Newest?

 I called Red Hat and they said the up2date service was $60 per
machine per year?

Any Advice or comments?
