Local YUM Repository Issues


I have a local YUM repository setup to pull RHN updates from a server.

I'm using httpd and I can do everything but a YUM install or YUM update - YUM list works great.

This is the error I get when I run YUM Update

Loaded plugins: rhnplugins, security
This system is not registered with RHN
RHN support will be disabled
Skipping security plugin, no data
Setting up update process
No packages marked for update.

So how I turn off my client to think that it needs to be registered -- /etc/sysconfig?
AND if it can list all the packages from my server why is it not installing them?

You have to go to the red hat site and register your computer.
Then you can get updates. I have run red hat and if your not going to pay for support you might as well run fedora instead.

If this box is gonna serve as your local repo, then it has to be registered & connected to RHN to pull the update packages down.

Assuming you have a subscription. You can register the machine by running:
Code:
# rhn_register

I have the server registered with RHN. This server pulls all the downloads/updates. Once the updates are downloaded I put it back in my workgroup and have the clients pull the updates from the server.

When the client pulls whne I run the YUM "update" I get the following error --

Loaded plugins: rhnplugins, security
This system is not registered with RHN
RHN support will be disabled
Skipping security plugin, no data
Setting up update process
No packages marked for update.

I'm having the clients pull from /var/www/html/yum/rhel5 -- which a directory that I created in the server side

The default repo files will pt at RHN; you need to change that (http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/redhat...etup-repo.html or http://www.howtoforge.com/creating_a...ository_centos), or get the RHN PROXY server which does pretty much what you want http://docs.huihoo.com/redhat/RHNetw...ll-config.html

How exactly did you setup the repository on the server? Did you run createrepo on the downloaded packages, then serve it thru httpd?
How is the yum on the clients configured?

You gotta have the .repo file setup right.
Here's how mine sorta looks like:
Code:
[updateserver]
name=Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update Server
baseurl=http://192.168.1.10/yum/rhel5
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
