yum update issue


HI,

When using yum update.

I get the following message:

Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: rhel-x86_64-server-5. Please verify its path and try again.

I have been through all the web site forums including this one. There are multiple references to this but none seem to work.

Has anyone seen this before and if so how do you fix it?

Dear

Can you please send, content of your yum configuration for id rhel-x86_64-server-5. If suppose it refer to yum repository of redhat on web, then you must register using rhn_register, and ensure web connectivity is perfect.

Thanks

HI Vishesh,

I have sorted the problem, seems that the one server does not like wildcard sin the password for RHN, changed the password for the user and it works fine now. Further the config is the same.

Thanx
