    Hi, I’m thinking about implementing Spacewalk in a company running approximately 50 CentOS Linux servers. I wanted to know the following:

    – how much storage would be required for such an installation including database
    – is it possible to exclude certain packages or updates to prevent them from being patched in order for custom build applications won’t crash or stop running after all patches have been applied
    – can you group or exclude certain applications from being patched with new versions of for example java or apache
    – is it possible to reverse applied patches (and how) in case something goes wrong after applying them

    All advise is appreciated and incase you encountered other major issues, thanks.
