how to configure RHEL4.0 as up2date proxy
Posted on 2013-01-11
I have registered the server succesfully to RHN , and RH support told me that in order to make this box an up2date proxy i need to do this :
On the proxy, move the rhn-org-trusted-ssl-cert-*.noarch.rpm to the /var/www/html/pub directory so the clients can easily use wget to download it from there and install it.
Once the rpm is installed on the client, either run rhnreg_ks --serverURL=proxy.example.com or simply edit that line in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date along with the sslCACert=/usr/share/rhn/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT and use the normal rhn_register.
Then the clients will be pointing to RHN Proxy.
To begin with , i dont have the www directory under the /var directory and when i do rpm -aq |*.noarch.rpm it doesnt return anything.
How can i start ?
