Replicate RPM's to another server

Something that makes part of our day..replicate some RPM's to another server for easy installation without the version or arch.

Let's get all RPM's to a file:

rpm -qa --qf "%{NAME}\n" > /tmp/all-rpms

But, I just need for PHP (example):

rpm -qa --qf "%{NAME}\n" | grep 'php-' > /tmp/php-rpms

This will output something like this:

cat /tmp/php-rpms 
php-pecl-jsonc
php-process
php-pear
php-mysqlnd
php-pecl-imagick
php-mbstring
php-common
php-pecl-msgpack
php-pecl-igbinary
php-xmlrpc
php-soap
php-pecl-zip

Transfer to the new server

Now that we have that file on the new server, let's install all the RPM with a single command:

yum install -y $(cat /tmp/php-rpms)
