Create YUM Server RHEL 5

aaeandcee asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-16

I've have been poking around and haven't come across exactly what I need to install a YUM Server.  We have only 1 server in our environment that is capable of reaching the Internet, so I wanted to crate a YUM Update Server inside our LAN for all the other servers to update from.  We have licensed RHEL 5.0 boxes, so I was looking for a RHEL solution.  I have found CentOS and Fedora solutions, but management insists that it is a Red Hat repository.  

I have a server right now and need step by step how to get this box up and running as a YUM Update Server and how I can keep it updated with new patches.

Thank you!
