Any Idea, why I get this message?
Thank you all....
I am guessing that the system is not registered to RHN or to your local Satellite server, right?
What it is telling you is that it is looking for repository information and you have no repositories defined. You can either register the system with RHN or Satellite to access repo info through the yum-rhn-plugin, or create a rhel.repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d that looks something like this:
Obviously, you will substitute server.yourcompany.com with a server in your organization, and /path/to/blah with the path to the location into which you copied the install media.
Hope this helps
