Flags for Yum processing:
Make Yum replace obsoleted packages by their recommended counterparts. Defaults to
falseto keep backwards compatibility.
/software/components/spma/userpkgs: string ("yes|no")
Whether SPMA should keep any packages the user may have installed manually.
noto make the SPMA take full control of all your software installations. Set to
yesto preserve any packages you installed by hand. If you do so, SPMA will never remove a package.
Yum-based spma might get confused and fails when it tries to remove packages when
nowhile installing new ones. Typically it will (try to) remove a leaf package, that is also to be installed as a dependency of a new to-be-installed package.
true, the package update process will be retried in case of failure in 2 steps, a first retry while preserving the installed packages, and if this retry was succesful, followed by a second retry where it will (try to) remove leaf packages again.

/software/components/spma/proxy: string ("yes|no")
Whether to use a proxy.
/software/components/spma/proxytype: string ("forward|reverse")
Type of proxy (reverse or forward).
Comma-separated list of proxy hosts. If you have a forward proxy you should specify only one. You may specify several reverse proxies here, and they will be appended to the

Port where the proxies are listening.
/software/components/spma/run: string ("yes|no")
Whether to actually run Yum operations that may install, remove or update packages.
Yum-based spma will try to verify that all version locked packages can actually be found in the provided repositories. For packages that have versions with wildcards specified, a full (and possibly slow) search of each pattern can be performed by setting
fullsearchto true. By default, the fullsearch is not performed, and for any packages that have versions with wildcards, it is assumed that the repositories contain them.
