Asterisk Server


I tried the yum update -y command.

The output is

Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, security, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
Unable to read consumer identity
Setting up Update Process
No packages marked for update

My computer is connected to the internet. I try to view the subscription-manager list. :-

Installed Product Status

Product Name: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server

Version: 6.3

Can i know what does it means? and why I can't do the yum command. All of it. I'm new in Red Hat. Because my project specification, I need to use Red Hat.

I really need help here ASAP because i need to do presentation for my project next week and my progress for this project almost nothing.

It means that you haven't PAID FOR RHEL, so you are not entitled to ANY updates/patches that a subscription gets you. You have two choices here: call Red Hat support, pay for a license (I believe a student/personal license may be only $99), or load CentOS instead which is FREE, but 99.x% identical. Also, you're using 6.3, which is an older version of RHEL, the current is 6.5.

That said, the screen-shot you posted say VERY CLEARLY that they're for CentOS 6.3, so saying that you need Red Hat is a lie. Also, those instructions need to be taken with a grain of salt...they are poorly written, and contain some very questionable things, like TOTALLY DISABLING selinux.

This is a volunteer forum...as such, there is nothing here that is urgent for anyone, and asking for/expecting 'ASAP' help is fairly rude. We volunteer our time. If you need 'urgent/ASAP' help, then call Red Hat support.
