yum download


I have a server that does not have internet connectivity and a server that does. I can only seem to find the working packages i need when i use yum to get them.

Is it possible to use yum on the server with internet to download them, locate them, and then move them to the server without internet?

Yes. You should be able to find all the packages under /var/cache and copy
them across.

Hi dorlack,

In addition to Tinkster's suggestion I would say you can use the server which has got internet connection as local repository server if you have got a connection between server that has got internet access and the server that does not have internet access.
