Import RHEL media into a SUSE Manager Channel

The goal of this procedure is having a RHEL media as a SUSE Manager channel. This mean that you will find the packages from your RHEL DVD or ISO into a regular SUSE Manager channel.

On the SUSE Manager Web UI

  • Create the channel in SUSE Manager

In the Admin web UI, go to "Channels" -> "Manage Software Channels" - > "Create channel" and fill the basic channel details.

On the CLI of SUSE Manager

  • Copy the ISO to your SUSE Manager server in /tmp
  • Create a directory:
   # mkdir -p /srv/www/htdocs/pub/rhel
  • mount the iso:
   # mount -o loop /tmp/name_of_iso /srv/www/htdocs/pub/rhel
  • Start spacewalk-repo-sync:
   # spacewalk-repo-sync -c your_channel_name -u
Repo URL:
Packages in repo:              3690
Packages already synced:          0
Packages to sync:              3690
1/3690 : texlive-latex-2007-57.el6_2-0.x86_64
2/3690 : boost-filesystem-1.41.0-18.el6-0.i686
3/3690 : policycoreutils-newrole-2.0.83-19.39.el6-0.x86_64
  • After this is finished you can clone.
