it is installed and configured BY default

click on the register icon on the desktop and register your install
once you have a licensed and registered install
yum will work

buying the required support license

if it is not registered and paid for
you do not install anything

if you are not going to buy the required license -- do not use rhel

instead install one of the FREE rebuilds like
CentOS 6.3


but if i am misunderstanding you and you want to set up a "local-repo" on a registered install
then see the red hat knowledge base ( you WILL need the user name and password you set up with your RHN account you paid for)
search for "local repository"

https://access.redhat.com/search/quick?
and have a look through the red hat docs

mount installation cd to /mnt
then create another directory and copy all the file from /mnt to new directory
create a repo file with vi,
baseurl= new directory path

this worked for me..

Yum repository for RHEL6 requires registration to the Red Hat Network, it does mean that you need to buy license.

You can workaround this matter using the "epel repository" made for Linux Centos/RHEL.

Step by step, you should :

1. under /etc/yum.repos.d/ --> create epel.repo
2. configure epel.repo with proper url you can find on internet (search for on google). Syntax is shown as well.
3. as soon you finished, launch "man yum" and check for the syntax.

---

then, if you want Your server becomes a repository you should create a directory-container of any "rpm" file and use "file:///[...]" instead "http://[...]" in the ".repo" file .

basically, a repo file is nothing else that a link for yum to search packages you should configure.

but it is 1,000,000% easier to pay red hat
and do it legally

or

install the free CentOS6.3
than it is to "try" to by-pass the locks


it you are NOT going to buy the REQUIRED license do not use it

use one of the FREE versions
CentOS

Yes, he is quite right. learning purpose can be accomplished anyway by CentOS or other version.

Or like me, you can get a license number and don't use it but i wouldn't suggest to get your life complicated like that.
