Lightbulb apt-rpm


Hi have to configure a RedHat 7.2 server in order to distrubute some rpm on other servers.
I think that i understandd how apt-rpm runs in the client but i don't have any idea on what to do on the master server.
Can u please give me some advices ...

rem: i have to avoid any ftp transfert, only http if possible...

you have to set up a web server on the the server side to use apt, and then add the ip to the /etc/apt/sources.list file on the client(s). then run apt-get update, apt-get install pkg_name.

If it is a small lan then I would just set up nfs and mount the rpm repos and rpm the files in at once. Saves setting up apache for an intranet. Although if this is going to be ongoing you may have the right idea. It is however some work.

Are you rollong your own? b/c if these are standard pkgs you could just use freshrpms repository and not bother with an internal one.

Your statement is conflictual. If you are building custom pkgs then use the apache process I told you earlier.

Thanx for your answer.
