SUSE Manager/Sync RHEL media
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 https://127.0.0.1/pub/rhel/Server/ Repo URL: https://127.0.0.1/pub/rhel/Server/ 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 the end of the synchronization, you will be able to manipulate this channel as a regular SUSE Manager channel.
