A Query on Yum Server with mirroring feature via RHN for RHEL 5.4


Hi Friends,

Our client has RHEL 5.4 in 5 systems. Only one server (say SysA) can connect to internet. What they want is SysA should be made a YUM server and all the other 4 systems a YUM client to SysA. They have licence to download rpms via RHN. But for some reasons, they dont want to copy the rpms from DVD. So, we wish to suggest a mirroring option similar to this link:

http://www.howtoforge.com/creating_a...ository_centos

so that an rsync could be made to completely download the rpms to SysA server and later createrepo could be used to create repository.

We, at our office, do not have an RHN registration, so we could not try this on our own. Expecting your valuable info on whether this is (rsyncing the whole rpms) possible in Red Hat similar to what is possible via CentOS.

If not possible, is there any alternative which we could look into?

Thanks a lot.
Saagar

Well, you can set SysA to be a RHN Proxy server http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Re...tro-proxy.html.
A more involved/expensive option (but can manage without internet) is RH Satellite http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Re...ide/index.html

Hi chrism01, Thanks for your reply. Sorry for my belated reply. I will go through the reference links you have provided. Also, the following link too is very close to what we actually require:

http://kenfallon.com/how-to-mirror-r...-your-firewall

I will mark this thread as solved, but I cant find that here . Anyway, Thanks a lot
