Updating RHEL 5.6 from local Repositiry


Hi,

Please note that as I have two servers A & B.

In case of Server B i do not have access to the Internet.

In the same ref. I have to manually download all the updates on Server A and need to install the same on Server B.

Please let us know how I can create repository on Server A and install the updates on B.

Please suggest.


Thanks
Rajan

From your other thread, you say you're a registered RHEL user. So, call Red Hat support, and ask them to walk you through setting up a Red Hat satellite server, or check their knowledgebase for the tutorial:
https://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/R...installer.html

They can also walk you through other patching/updating procedures, if that's not what you're looking for.

Keep in mind that running a satellite costs around $8000 and requires valid O/S licences with management option for each server you want to provision.

You could, theoretically, tell yum on the "registered" server to cache its downloaded RPMs and copy those onto the other server.

Hi

Hi kitgerrits,

Please let me know once downloaded all the updates in local repository, what is the command to manually update the packages.

Thanks
