Set up a local repository for DataPlane
Setting up a local repository involves moving the tarball to the selected mirror server and extracting the tarball to create the repository.
- Ensure that you have downloaded the required tarball from the customer portal, following the instructions provided as part of the product procurement process.
- You must have completed the preparatory tasks before setting up a repository.
Copy the repository tarballs 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 each of the repository
Replace <filename> with the actual name of the RPM tarball that you are expanding.
tar zxvf <filename>.tar.gzDuring expansion of the tarball, subdirectories are created in /var/www/html/, such as DP/centos7. These directories contain the repositories.
Expanding the tarball takes several seconds.
- Navigate to the web server directory you previously created.
