Why is yum not seeing available files?


Hi All,

I have created a repo for offline usage. I get files to it via downloading it via a "yum install --downloadonly --downloaddir=/tmp <package_name>". and then copy the downloaded file to my offline repo. I just copied over the python2-pyvmomi-6.5-1 rpm and for some reason, yum doesn't see it. Here's what I have:

[root@app02 media]# ll python2-pyvmomi-6.5-1*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 410592 Dec 28 07:57 python2-pyvmomi-6.5-1.el7.noarch.rpm
[root@app02 media]# pwd
/var/www/html/media
[root@app02 media]# yum install python2-pyvmomi-6.5-1
Loaded plugins: langpacks, search-disabled-repos
No package python2-pyvmomi-6.5-1 available.
Error: Nothing to do
[root@app02 media]# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/local.repo
[media]
name=media
baseurl=http://192.168.1.18/media
gpgcheck=0
enabled=1
[root@app02 media]#


How come it can't find the python2-pyvmomi package?

yum uses repositories. These repositories have catalogs which lists the content of the repo. So it cannot install a standalone rpm without that. see the command createrepo.

Hi pan64,

I'm still having issues. I ran createrepo --update and it still won't install a few RPMs. For example:

[root@redhat7-repo Packages]# yum install openshift-ansible-playbooks
Loaded plugins: langpacks, product-id, search-disabled-repos, subscription-manager
No package openshift-ansible-playbooks available.
Error: Nothing to do
[root@redhat7-repo Packages]# ls openshift-ansible-playbooks*
openshift-ansible-playbooks-3.6.173.0.3-1.el7.noarch.rpm
[root@redhat7-repo Packages]#

Did I misunderstand your post?

this is redhat right ???
and not centos7 or sl7 ( or fermi 7 )

if it is rhel7 you do have the required support contract ?
-- you DO need it !

so log into the redhat site with your credentials you set up when you bought the support contract and do a search for "creatrepo "
and read the instructions

if you do not have a support contract for RHEL 7.4 then BUY ONE


if this is CentOS , cent also uses the redhat documentation ( the free for every one docs)
The white papers and "redhat knowledge_base" are for Licensed users only

I have no idea what did you really execute (and where). Probably you need to give more info. Probably you made a mistake (or more)...

Here's a summary of what I did (my bad that I didn't provide more detail).

1. Created a subscription/entitlement with Red Hat on my server.
2. Copied over the files I wanted from the Red Hat ISO.
3. Ran subscription-manager repos --list
4. From the previous list, ran subscription-manager repos --enable="rhel-7-server-rpms" --enable="rhel-7-server-extras-rpms"
5. Ran createrepo -v /path/to/my/repo/list
6. Ran createrepo -g comps.xml /path/to/my/repo/list
7. On a client:
# yum install openshift-ansible-playbooks-3.6.173.0.3-1.el7.noarch.rpm
Loaded plugins: langpacks, product-id, search-disabled-repos, subscription-manager
No package openshift-ansible-playbooks-3.6.173.0.3-1.el7.noarch.rpm available.
Error: Nothing to do
#

It works on the server, but not the client. What am I missing?

it looks like you did not configure the offline ( guessing lan here) repo

read the documentation on making a lan/offline repo

is the client set up and pointing to the repo ?
is the server folder set up to be read BY the client ?

This is the link I used to create the config:

https://access.redhat.com/solutions/23016

To answer your questions. The client is setup and pointing to the repo. And the server folder is set up to be ready by the client. Where do we go from here?

probably you misunderstood post #7.
On the client (before step 7) you need to configure yum to be able to use the repo created in step 6. Just creating the repo is not enough. Also you need to be sure the repo on the server is available (shared?) and reachable from the client.

If nothing helps you need to check the new repo locally on the server if that works...
