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.
  1. Copy the repository tarball for the DLM Instance to the web server directory and expand (uncompress) the archive file:
    1. Navigate to the web server directory you previously created.
      cd /var/www/html/
      All content in this directory is served by the web server.
    2. Move the tarball to the current directory and expand the repository tarball.
      Replace <filename> with the actual name of the RPM tarball that you are expanding.
      tar zxvf <file-name>.tar.gz
      During 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.

  2. Confirm that you can browse to the newly created local repository by using the Base URL:
    • <your_webserver>:port

      This is the FQDN and port of the web server host.

    • <repo_name>

      The repository name, usually the abbreviated name of the DPS component, for example DLM for Data Lifecycle Manager.

    • <OS>

      The operating system.

    • <version>

      The version number of the downloaded component.

    Base URL example:
    Remember this Base URL. You need it to set up the repository configuration file in subsequent steps.
  3. 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
  4. Edit the /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/priorities.conf file to add the following values:

The local repository is now set up and ready for use.

Create the configuration file for the newly created local repository.
