local epel repository


Hello for my job they have asked me to make a local epel repository for a redhat 7 server. Which should be available for other servers aswell.
But only certain packages like tomcat and and htop should be available.
And it should keep itself automaticly updated.

Can anyone tell me how to do this?

With kind regards
Trdrkelf

The first part of what you said is described here, at Red Hat's own website.

For the second part, you could setup a NFS server and have this repo on that, you could export it to your other servers. You could just add whatever packages and their dependencies to your local package repo, and therefore it would only have what you want plus their dependencies.

As far as keeping it updated automatically, that would involve the use of scripting I would think.
