Run the Server and VT files by “createrepo


Server]#rpm -ivh createrepo –aid –force


Execute the server file inside the “Server” directory from “Desktop”. Here comps-rhel5.server.core.xml from desktop will be executed inside /var/ftp/pub/Server

#createrepo -g /root/Desktop/comps-rhel5.server.core.xml -v /var/ftp/pub/Server


Execute the VT file inside the “VT” directory from Desktop. Here Comp-rhel5-vt.xml from desktop will be executed inside /var/ftp/pub/VT

#createrepo -g /root/Desktop/Comp-rhel5-vt.xml -v /var/ftp/pub/VT


/etc/yum.repos.d/ should contain only one .repo file.

#vim /etc/yum.repos.d/Server1.repo

name=Server SERVER repository

name=Server VT repository


#service vsftpd restart

#chkconfig vsftpd on

#yum cleanall

#yum list

“#yum list” will list all possible yum packages. If “#yum list” doesn’t returns any package then there is a error in yum configuration.
