I have a group I want to install.

Does this install the optional packages as well?

sudo yum groupinstall "Network Servers"

Optional packages:

~ $ sudo yum groups info "Network Servers"

@Rajat Thank's for pointing me in the rigtht direction.

Here is a link to directions on how to set this up.

Excerpt:

# Setting to install every package from a group
group_package_types=default, mandatory, optional

Put that in your /etc/yum.conf

Then do:

yum groupupdate "RPM Development Tools"    <------ Edit with your group-s

group_package_types = mandatory default optional

in your yum.conf and it will install all of those types.
