I have a totally isolated server running RHEL5 i.e. no internet connection.
I have downloaded from RHN all the latest upgraded rpm's and put them in a directory on the server e.g /data/patches/20100915/rpm
I then used :
createrepo --database /data/patches/20100915/rpm
This then created a subdirectory called repodata with all the metadata files in it.
I then created a new repository file in /etc/yum.repos.d as follows :
name=Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 - i386
When I run yum update it comes back with an error saying that it cannot find
yet when I check the location the file exists.
I am fairly new to linux and RHEL5 so any help with setting up a local repository would be gratefully appreciated.
