yum caching problem


I have a server that has been updated using yum, but it didnt cache the .rpms in /var/cache/yum/updates/packages.. i went to yum.conf set keepcache=1 and http_caching=all, ran yum list hoping it would see it doesnt have my updates cached and download them, but it doesnt.. any ideas on what i can do? I really need to have the rpms cached on my system.

Most likely if you already applied updates, nothing has been downloaded and installed.

well i know i got a large amount of updates off the repository, thats how i noticed its not caching the rpms, the xml files are hefty, but there are no packages or headers.. is there a way to rebuild this cache? yum makecache did not do anything

edit:

this isnt important i guess, but the reason i care about having all the .rpms cached is so i can propagate yum updates to my compute nodes on a rocks cluster. This would be really easy if updates/packages/ had the rpms.

I'm afraid not. You can always apply updates on one of the other nodes, saving cache and downloaded packages, then apply on the remaining ones.

Alright, thanks anyways.. I may just have to mirror the repositories on the head node, and have the compute nodes update on reinstall then.
