Setting up the local repository
Setting up a local repository involves moving the tarball to the selected mirror server and extracting the tarball to create the repository.
You must have completed the preparatory tasks before setting up a repository. For more information, see Prepare the web server for the local repository.
Copy the repository tarballs to the web server directory and expand (uncompress)
the archive file:
Change to the web server directory that you created earlier.
cd /var/www/html/All content in this directory is served by the web server.
Move the tarballs to the current directory and expand each of the repository
tarballs that you downloaded.
Replace <file-name> with the actual name of the RPM tarball that you are expanding.
tar zxvf <file-name>.tar.gzWhen you expand the tarball, subdirectories are created in /var/www/html/, such as DAS/centos7. These directories contain the repositories.
Expanding the DAS app tarball can take several seconds.
- Change to the web server directory that you created earlier.
Confirm that you can browse to the newly created local repositories by using the
Base URL ExamplesDAS Base URL:
This is the FQDN of the web server host.
This is composed of the abbreviated name of the repository, such as DAS.
This is the operating system version.
This is the version number of the downloaded repository, appended with a unique version number.
http://webserver.com:port/DAS/centos7/188.8.131.52-XNote the base URLs because you need them to install the DAS app on the host and to install the associated agent on the clusters.
If you have configured multiple repositories in your environment, then install the
following plugin on all the nodes in your cluster:
yum install yum-plugin-priorities
Edit the /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/priorities.conf file to add the
[main] enabled=1 gpgcheck=0
The repositories for DAS are now prepared for installation.
Create the configuration file for the DAS repository.
