This issue has been solved. See solution.

How can I determine which patches are for redhat 6.3 in Altiris patch management? 

We have some customer that want to update to certain level of redhat, for example rhel 6.4, rhel 5.9, rhel 6.2 etc..

If the RHE PMS vendor list works like the Windows one, then you should be able to see the versions from within that location.

The list does not work like in windows. When I choose operating system, for example Red hat enterprise linux (v.6 for 64 bit) all versions are shown, and not 6.0, 6.1, 6.2 etc... 

I would like to know how to sort updates for specific version.

I'm affraid it's impossible to select updates for RHEL by minor version like 6.2 or 6.5. For example Novell has strict channels separation for SuSE patch levels, and you can select SP2 or SP3. Same time RedHat has only base channels per OS.

Let's take at look at next security bulletin from RedHat - In section "Affected Products" you can see the list of all affected base channels, like "Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)". That's it - RHEL 5 Server, but not RHEL 5.10 Server or RHEL 5.9 Server. And if we compare it with some patch from Novell - then we can see the difference. Novell provides information about OS patch level(SP) that affected by some patch.

Thank you for the answer. I just needed to know if it's possible or not since we have customers that are requesting updates to certain level...

Sorry, but it's impossible at the moment.
