(or your preferred mirror)

  • Repeat the same procedure for the updates repo:
Repository label: CentOS 6 updates x86_64
Repository URL: http://mirrors.kernel.org/centos/6/updates/x86_64/
(or your preferred mirror)

  • Click on "Manage Software Channels", then "create new channel".
  • Create the base channel as follows:

Channel Label*: centos6-base-x86_64
Parent Channel: None

Repository Checksum Type: sha1

Channel Summary, etc: fill as desired

GPG key URL: http://mirrors.kernel.org/centos/6/os/x86_64/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-6

Second step: associate the repositories to the channels

  • Click on Channels->Manage Software Channels, then click on the CentOS base channel.
  • Click on Repositories, check the CentOS base repository and click on "Update repositories".
  • Optionally, you may click on the "Sync" tab, force a sync and/or schedule the repository synchronization.
  • Click on Channels->Manage Software Channels, then click on the CentOS update channel.
  • Click on Repositories, check the CentOS update repository and click on "Update repositories".
  • Optionally, you may click on the "Sync" tab, force a sync and/or schedule the repository synchronization.

Third step: registering the clients

After the repositories are properly synched, you should see about 6000+ packages for the base channel and a few hundred for the updates. Now it's time to register the clients. (TODO)
