I have been using a script similar to the following to keep a
fully-patched installation tree available on my local servers.
This script needs to be run from an RHN-registered host which runs
the same OS variant as the tree (ES/AS/WS).



  for $pkg in `up2date --showall`; do
	up2date --tmpdir=${repos}/RedHat/RPMS --get $pkg

  # Regenerate "comps" for installation purposes
  /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/genhdlist ${repos}
