I've configured Yum server in my 32 bit RHEL6 system
I've configured it under
There was an existing file under the /etc/yum.repos.d/ dir named redhat.repo which i deleted and created a new one named server.repo
However after rebooting the system redhat.repo file shows up again in that dir and Yum server is not working
I tried making yum server in redhat.repo and also under yum.conf also but still its the same and suggestions on above?
making a yum server? You appear to be working with the yum *client* not a server at all. You say it's not working yet haven't told us anything at all about what's happening. Please provide useful details for us to work on.
If you are a student and cannot or will not pay for RHEL, then use Centos, which is a free rebuild.
A Centos system should not overwrite your changes, although if its a VM, it depends if its set to (effectively) re-install, in which case ask the local admins for advice.
you did'nt mentioned how you have set it up? To configure yum server certain yum packages are need to be installed along with createrepo to create necessary repo files, that generally done with createrepo -v [some-name].
better if you are testing or practising it then uninstall the packages for yum server and do the install again, follow some step by step guide(there are lot many if you google for it) and then come to us with your issues atleast then you would have some idea on how the things are working.
and i created repo for that also. The yum is working fine
but when i reboot the system the file named rhel-source.repo
in /etc/yum.repos.d/ is created automatically which is taking priority over the file i have created i.e. server.repo
