Set up a local repository for DLM
If you did not set up a repository for DLM when you created the DPS repository, you must do so now. 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 installed and configured DPS Platform.
- You must have downloaded the required tarball from the customer portal, following the instructions provided as part of the product procurement process.
- You must have properly prepared the web server during creation of the DPS repository.
Copy the repository tarball for the DLM Instance to the web server directory and
expand (uncompress) the archive file:
Navigate to the web server directory you previously created.
cd /var/www/html/All content in this directory is served by the web server.
Move the tarball to the current directory and expand the repository
Replace <filename> with the actual name of the RPM tarball that you are expanding.
tar zxvf <file-name>.tar.gzDuring expansion of the tarball, subdirectories are created in /var/www/html/, such as DLM/centos7. These directories contain the repositories.
Expanding the tarball might take several seconds.
- Navigate to the web server directory you previously created.
Confirm that you can browse to the newly created local repository by using the
Base URL example:
This is the FQDN and port of the web server host.
The repository name, usually the abbreviated name of the DPS component, for example DLM for Data Lifecycle Manager.
The operating system.
The version number of the downloaded component.
http://<your_webserver>:port/DLM/centos7/188.8.131.52Remember this Base URL. You need it to set up the repository configuration file in subsequent steps.
If you have multiple repositories configured in your environment, deploy 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 local repository is now set up and ready for use.
Create the configuration file for the newly created local repository.
