Configuring SMT11 servers to use self-hosted repositories
This document (7004388) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11
If these repositories are to be mirrored to the server, that fact that the SMT server will download patches from nu.novell.com is inefficient.
- Make sure the SLES11-Updates and SLE11-SMT-Updates repositories are enabled and mirrored for the architecture of the server.
- Delete the nu_novell_com service if
it is present. The simplest way to do that is to just try and
delete it like this :
# zypper sd nu_novell_comIn case the server has not registered the nu.novell.com service, the output of the command will be :
Service 'nu_novell_com' not found by alias, number or URI.
If it had been present, the command would return output like this :
Removing service 'nu_novell_com':
Removing repository 'SLE11-SMT-Updates' [done]
Removing repository 'SLES11-Updates' [done]
Service 'nu_novell_com' has been removed.
- Register the server against itself with the clientSetup4SMT.sh
# /srv/www/htdocs/repo/tools/clientSetup4SMT.sh --host <fqdn-of-server>Accept the certificate (Ignore "WARNING: Skipping duplicate certificate YaST-CA.pem") and start the registration.
- Refresh the services :
# zypper ref -s
- Verify that the SLES11-Updates and SLE11-SMT-Updates
repositories are enabled and point to this server with
# zypper lr -uThe aliases of the repos would be :
