xinetd download n install


Hi Guys,

Team i want to install xinetd on Oracle Enterprise Linux, but my server is in a secured zone and has no access to internet. Due to this yum install xinetd is not working. Can you guide me on how manually i can install xinetd, where to download and the steps to install it.

Any pointers will be of great help.

Thanks,
RTG

Don't do it without the permission of the group responsible for security within your zone.
And the corollary, if they give you permission, they'll tell you how to install it (they'll probably install and configure it for you)
Xinetd will start services automatically upon a connection request, which is not a behavior that's encouraged in secure zones.

xinetd download n install

Hi dejtlo,

Let me make it more clear, i am the one who is responsible of the server. But the issue is there is no connectivity to internet. Hence yum is failing and it keeps on trying different mirrors and timeouts.

So i want to manually do the same and need guidance.

Thanks,
RGT

Probably the best solution is for you to put a spacewalk or satellite server in the secure zone (or at least accessible to the secure zone) and publish a channel for that server type.
You can download the dependencies and the package rpm, sneaker net them over to the server on a thumb drive and install them with an rpm -i in the order dictated by the dependency tree, however you'll be doing that every time you do patching, upgrades or installing software, so it will get old, fast.
If you install the Sat server, you can load all the software any of your instances need in an internal repository, giving you control over the packages available for installation while simultaneously largely automating that process. You just have to go to the target instance, wget the channel and yum upgrade all.

Here's a wiki I've used in the past for this specific purpose. Take a look, if you still prefer to sneaker net it (or for security reasons that's all you can do) post back and I'll hunt up some instructions for determining the dependency tree and installing xinetd via rpm, but if there was any way I would swing it, I'd use the spacewalk (Satellite) server.

Here's a link for Oracles download page but neither Oracle nor RedHat is going to give you a Satellite server.
CentOS is the community project that supports the only freeware Sat server I know of.
